September is Detroit Month of Design, the perfect time to see Setting the Table, the last of four PASC Detroit Pop-Up Gallery art exhibits we’ve been hosting since early May. Setting the Table will open at our first-floor office space on September 2 and run through September 25.
As with the previous exhibits, which kicked off with Liberty Realm, this exhibition features the work of artists with disabilities from Progressive Art Studio Collective (PASC). The PASC program is part of Services to Enhance Potential (STEP), a nonprofit that provides services to those in Wayne County with developmental and mental health needs.
Setting the Table, curated by New York-based artist Tyrrell Winston, explores the role of community and nourishing relationships within the PASC program. The show will feature the work of 21 PASC artists, some whose work has been featured in the previous exhibits. All art is for sale, and proceeds will be shared between the artists and PASC.
Featured artists include Jerri Burks, Lesley Carlton, Donovan Clay, Sereal Crawford, Robert Duncombe, Latoya Elliot, Lewis Foster, Eric Green, Shawn Jackson, Darlene Mahan, Ryan McDonagh, Debbie Osteen, Alsendoe Owens, Stefan Payne, Deanna Poppenger, Renee Rogan, Thomas Saunders, Ray Smith, Aaron Taylor, Jeremy Taylor and Roger Tolliver.
From September 2 to 25, regular gallery hours for Setting the Table will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. On Friday, September 23, PASC will also host a closing reception from 5 to 7 p.m., featuring refreshments from STEP’s culinary program (register here to attend). Exhibition sponsors include Batch Brewing Company and the Michigan Arts and Culture Council. Find out more about Detroit Month of Design and the full schedule of events for September.
