CulturalDC is thrilled to present Uncanny Fantastic by local artist JD Deardourff! Celebrate the Union Market opening with community members on January 13 from 4-6pm.

Deardourff's show at the SPACE4: Mobile Art Gallery will feature new, experimental mono prints that focus on color and energy. Uncanny Fantastic coincides with the release of Deardourff’s self-published comic book series of the same name. Throughout the exhibition, Deardourff will hold free artist workshops with the community where he will demonstrate the basics of screen printing and produce small works of art with the participants.

Uncanny Fantastic runs January 10 through February 23. The gallery will be open Wednesday through Friday 12-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-8pm.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
(https://instagram.com/jddeardourff/?hl=en)
JD Deardourff is an artist residing in Washington, DC. In 2012 he received a BFA with an emphasis in printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he studied under Karl Wirsum and Albert Ohlen. JD is interested in the vocabulary of comic book art: exaggeration, energy, movement, contour line, the interplay of sequential images, and, most importantly, artificial color. He collages this imagery into unpredictable, abstract, and bittersweet compositions that are simultaneously optimistic and apocalyptic.
