About Our Gallery
Our gallery opens for every first Friday gallery crawl along the Penn Avenue Arts District. Each first Friday of the month, called Unblurred, Assemble features an artist, maker, technologist, academic department, or student. The work is in the space from the first Friday to the last Friday of the month. For more information on upcoming shows and workshops, visit our calendar.
December through January Show
“These words are the gaps, and the art was my solution.”
Benjamin Delano grew up with dyslexia, mixing up similar letters and spelling phonetically. He experienced gaps in his education. He filled these gaps by exploring creative playing, building, and making. Through this art exhibit, Delano wants the audience to experience his struggle with spelling through his concentration in craft and creativity.
Join Assemble on Friday, February 1 from 6-10pm to meet the artist, learn about the art process, and enjoy refreshments!
