OFF THE GRID: Creating Change Through Art Instruction & Inspiration

Reception: Friday, July 20 7 – 9pm, with opening remarks at 7:30pm

“Off the Grid” is an exhibition featuring the artwork created by Northern Virginia inmates under the volunteer instruction of Kelli Schollard-Sincock (aka Ms. Kelli) of ‘Inspiration Matterz’. The students in Ms. Kelli’s classes range in age, background, and experience, most having never drawn before. She uses a step-by-step process utilizing a griding system to teach the basics in observation and interpretation of line, tone and texture. The artwork displayed in this exhibition is just a small sampling of an enormous body of work that has been produced over the past year by her students. (*Out of respect of privacy for the students, names are simplified to their initials.)

About the Curator

Kelli Schollard-Sincock is a Volunteer Art Instructor at both the Alexandria Detention Center and the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. She began developing her art curriculum at the Alexandria Detention Center on a trial run in 2017. Within a year her program has grown to include the Fairfax Country Adult Detention Center now serving approximately 85+ students per week. Kelli began this program as a way to give back to her community and to teach self-empowerment through tangible working skills. As much as she enjoys seeing the beautiful work produced by her students, her greatest sense of fulfillment is witnessing the pride in accomplishment by her students and ultimately to watch them become teachers themselves. Teaching art within the jail system poses many challenges including restrictions on materials and tools. Both the Alexandria and Fairfax facilities have been extremely encouraging and cooperative in aiding the program to grow and develop. Since its inception, the Inspiration Matterz art courses has worked with well over 200+ students. Kelli is a certified Forensic Sketch Artist through the Stuart Parks Forensics Associates. She holds a Bachelor’s of Art degree in Interdisciplinary Art from the University of Washington, and has recently completed the Bachelor of Fines Art’s program in Printmaking at George Mason University.

About Inspiration Matterz

Inspiration Matterz is the brainchild of Kelli Schollard-Sincock and is currently in the works to become a non-profit with the intention of serving the less fortunate within her community through art instruction. She is indebted to and greatly humbled by the support she has received from her community through donation of materials, legal services, monetary support, and the provision of classroom opportunities from so many people including: The Alexandria Detention Center, The Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, The Del Ray Artisans, The Reston Buy Nothing Group, Cooley LLP Legal Services, Thomas J. Long Foundation, Cathy Fisher of Fisher & Kong LLP, and Leslie Mounaime Director of the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. She is especially thankful to her family for their continued and unwavering support of her program.

 

This exhibition is supported by the Del Ray Artisans.

Class outline

Class begin with a crystal bowl meditation and will include gentle movement for circulation and flow and move in to a few accessible seated Asanas (poses) for stretching and release. Options for all levels will be offered. Chairs will be available for those who would like them. Class will end with a 15 min Savassana, in which students will be invited to lie down and listen to the gong.

Crystal Singing Bowls are made of quartz and resonate to specific frequencies. They create a clear “toning” that brings a state of calm and centeredness to the body. This vibrational sound is heard and felt through the whole body and assists in the process of relaxation which can be very helpful in yoga asana or meditation practices.

The Symphonic Gong in contrast, made of a brass compound, belongs to some of the oldest musical instruments known. It has complex harmonics with a clear fundamental tone and rich dynamic overtones that literally wash over and through the body. Due to the complexity and totality of this sound, the effects are quite comprehensive and the sound in affect “re-sets” the body and mind to a state of neutral.

DUENDE DISTRICT ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

Shani Shih is a multidisciplinary visual artist in Washington DC. Her personal artwork speaks at a visceral level; it features bold linework, gritty textures, and expressive human figures intertwined with harsh industrial structures, and represents everyday social and bodily experience in the stratified landscapes of the modern world. Through her creations, she aims to communicate a shared experience of suffering and endurance, as well as everlasting love and hope – providing comfort, strength, and acknowledgement to all.

Shani is also dedicated to supporting communities in need through public art, teaching and community arts, with a focus on serving underrepresented Asian Pacific American communities. During the 2016 primaries, Shani co-curated Bern the System!, a street art showcase that featured 70+ regional artists and uplifted messages of social change. She then served as a lead organizer for a four-city mural campaign centering the message of the indigenous-led Water is Life movement—which led to the 2017 founding of the 411 Collective, a graffiti/street art collective that supports local and national community advocacy initiatives with public art. In 2018, with the help of 1882 Foundation/Chinese American Citizens Alliance/Harrison and Ann Lee Memorial Scholarship Fund, she founded the Chinatown Art Studio, a youth art space servicing Asian Pacific American youth through multimedia art instruction and creative empowerment programming.

As Duende District’s current Artist in Residence, she is excited to share her personal story and voice through her creations. She is pleased to also present “In Our Eyes,” a special youth art display that spotlights diverse voices of Asian/Pacific Islander American youth in the DC area, from the Chinatown Art Studio program and beyond.
