About the Exhibition

The Gallery at Delaware County Community College presents the 215|610 Contemporary: Juried Exhibition of Regional Emerging Artists, to be presented entirely online this March, 2021. The purpose of this juried exhibition is to engage the community in regional art and participate in an exchange of ideas and abilities. Artists are invited to bring new life to an age-old method of creating art, building a contemporary definition of their medium.


Juror: Christina Vassallo

Christina Vassallo was appointed Executive Director of the Fabric Workshop and Museum, in Philadelphia, in early 2020. Previously, she spent six productive years as Executive + Artistic Director of SPACES, in Cleveland, where she provided creative direction and oversaw operations for one of the longest-running alternative art organizations in the country. Before relocating to Cleveland, she was Executive Director of Flux Factory, in NYC, where she set the course for an expansive art collective and residency program. She is currently completing the Chief Executive Program of National Arts Strategies with a nonprofit certificate from Harvard Business School, as well as a 2021 fellowship through the German Marshall Fund.
