“Considering the breadth of it all, it’s amazing how well it’s going,” says GroundSwell’s Rebecca Peebles, who adds that she and her gallery collaborators, Sabin Aell of Hinterland and Donald Fodness of Showpen, hope to come together annually for future projects. And the learning curve — including the discovery that customs treats art as a difficult commodity — will no doubt make that easier the next time around.
Direct Connect continues through April 5 at GroundSwell, 3121 East Colfax Avenue; Showpen, 809 West 9th Avenue; and Hinterland, 3254 Walnut Street and continues through April 5. For more information, go to hinterlandartspace.com or groundswellgallery.com.
