July 22, 2017-August 19, 2017
Reception - Saturday, July 22, 2017, 8pm – 10pm
Because sometimes the darkest hour calls for the brightest lights, Olly Olly presents Beyond the Blacklight, an all-blacklight group show curated by Tariq Omar. Because we can’t allow every moment to be an existential crisis. Because we need to heed the call of playfulness and light. Because night. Because summer. Because love. Because we know you’re truly dazzling and deserve to be bathed in glowing purple and surrounded by vibrant fluorescent sensations. Join us for our opening reception on Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm as the following artists share their most vivid works:
Martin J. Cervantez
Abner De Jesus
Olly Olly wants to nourish the body and the community as well. We will be collecting healthy non-perishable food items for Britepaths, which provides short-term emergency food assistance to Fairfax County area residents who are in crisis. We encourage you to bring a healthy non-perishable food item to donate. Britepaths is most in need of cooking oil, brown rice, dried beans, canned fruit in its own juices, and pasta sauce.
Olly Olly, located at 10417 Main Street, 2nd Floor in Fairfax, VA, is open for special events and by appointment. Beyond the Blacklight will be on view at Olly Olly from July 22, 2017 through August 19, 2017. Please call 703-789-6144 for more information.
