Art on Display: Dominique Chastenet de Géry and Clara DeGalan

Dominique Chastenet de Géry received an MFA from Wayne State University in 2016. In 2017, Dominique moved to Ann Arbor, where she set up a studio. She shows regularly throughout the Detroit area and in California, where her family settled in the late 1950's. In the early 1970's Dominique spent some time in Mexico before returning to study painting and classics at UC Santa Cruz. She moved to Chicago in the late 1970’s where she enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, before ultimately moving to Detroit to raise a family. Throughout her career as an artist, Dominique experimented with a wide variety of mediums and bodies of work, including ceramics and textiles, as well as paper maché and encaustic. Now a full-time artist, she is devoting her practice exclusively to landscape oil painting. Recent shows include: Water Sacred, at the Scarab Club, Terrain, Detroit Artist Market, and a two person show at LA Artcore, Los Angeles, CA.

Clara DeGalan was born and raised in Detroit, MI. She attended the Detroit High School for the Fine and Performing Arts, earned her BFA at the University of Michigan, and her MFA in painting at Wayne State University. She has attended artist’s residencies at Vermont Studio Center and The Great Mother and New Father Conference in Nobleboro, ME. She teaches drawing and painting at Wayne State University and Madonna University, and writes art criticism for Detroit Art Review and InfiniteMile Detroit. Her current work, which seeks to define a spiritual path through life guided by synesthetic connections, the technical lacework of teaching, New Age literature and imagery, and the beauty of the visible world, has been featured in local and national group exhibitions. She has curated several group exhibitions, most recently the Undergraduate Student Exhibition at The University of Toledo. She currently resides in Hamtramck, MI.

There will be an artist reception with refreshments on Friday September 21st from 8-10pm. Artist Conversation to precede the reception at 7:30pm.
