It’s the little things in life that matter the most sometimes…and in this case, the little art! Guests and artists joined us in either location in Philadelphia or New York for a show that celebrated the small and the beautiful. Jewel-like masterpieces made in traditional media were curated into a beautiful selection of work by contemporary artists as they share their vision with us. Curated by Jessica Libor.

Stargarden exhibition was hosted by The DaVinci Alliance on September 1, 2017 from 6 to 9:30pm, and included the artwork of 23 artists from various parts of the nation.

The artwork was primarily 2 dimensional, although one sculpture was present: a fascinating pinhole-inspired tableau. The work all displayed a continuity in keeping with the ideas of stars, celestial movements, moonlit gardens, and the growth of earthly things contrasted with the eternal shimmer of the heavens.
The evening’s entertainment was provided by Seth Aaron Jones and Christy Irizarry, a Philadelphia based singer-songwriter performing duo. A starry, festive photo booth proved the perfect opportunity for visitors, collectors, and artists to pose and take a souvenir Polaroid home. Below are selected works from the show.
