In keeping with AAC’s mission of promoting rising regional artists, the semiannual SOLOS exhibition returns this fall. Following a call in early 2015, jurors Melissa Ho, Assistant Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, and Chicago-based artist, Jefferson Pinder, recommended 14 artists for inclusion in AAC's 2015-16 cohort of SOLOS artists.

Seven artists hailing from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia will each mount a self-contained show in one of seven separate gallery spaces, resulting in a sampling of never-before-seen art.

Artists: Katie Duffy (Baltimore, MD) | Rachel Guardiola (Baltimore, MD) | Dean Kessmann (Washington, DC) | Sonya Lawyer (Columbia, MD) | Nara Park (Washington, DC) | Austin Shull (Arlington, VA) | Benjamin Zellmer Bellas (Chestertown, MD).
