This month, we welcome Victoria L. and Dylan Mulshine to The Shuckster space!
wizards is an installation of visual art by Victoria L. and sound collage by Dylan Mulshine. It features colorful fabric art in a pair of small exhibition spaces and sounds produced from a full-spectrum cave. Why do we do what we do? Because colors and noise have a power. Because growing up doesn't have to mean giving up. Because settling in doesn't have to mean settling down. Everything you need to learn about right living is found in Young Adult Fantasy novels.
Victoria L. is an artist and independent curator. She is inspired by the Gee's Bend Quilters Collective, Fort Thunder, and Sister Corita. She has shown her art at Space 1026 in Philadelphia, Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn, Open Space in Baltimore, On Reading Gallery in Nagoya, Japan and elsewhere. She co-founded a pop-up gallery in central Virginia called Thanky, where she curated exhibits and performances for one year. She has also curated exhibits at Trance Pop Gallery in Kyoto and the Hexagon Space in Baltimore and she participated in the first-ever Osaka Zine Fair in Japan this year.
