Juror

This is a juried exhibition, and it will be co-curated by gallery manager Amanda Bradley, and exhibition juror, Kate Pittman, Executive Director of ViBe Creative District in Virginia Beach, Virginia. 

Kate Pittman is a nonprofit arts executive with 16 years experience working in Hampton Roads. In her role as director for the first arts district in Virginia Beach, she works with a nonprofit board of community leaders, city officials, a business association of approximately 100 small local businesses and over 200 artists to champion local culture. Pittman partners with artists and entrepreneurs to collaborate in the unique and engaging destination called ViBe. The ViBe District has rapidly grown since its 2015 adoption by city council with the addition of over 50 new small businesses and over 350 works of art. The ViBe Creative District has raised over $1 Million dollars to support local artists and small businesses and has received over 750 positive press articles--including Jeopardy, Rolling Stone Magazine and Southern Living. Pittman lives with her husband and sons in Virginia Beach.

D’Art Center’s Main GalleryD’Art Center’s Main Gallery is located within The Center at 740 Boush St. Norfolk Virginia, in the heart of the NEON District; Norfolk’s Art District. D’Art’s 2,200sqft gallery has incredible visibility to Boush Street traffic and pedestrians due to its massive street side window facade. The gallery is also amongst a thriving new apartment community of over 400 new apartments and more than 1,000 residents.
D’Art Center History

As Norfolk’s community art center, the d’Art Center proudly serves the greater Hampton Roads area by connecting the community with the visual arts. A non-profit 501c (3) organization, d’Art offers both youth and adult art education and classes, exhibits that give the public a broader exposure to many local and national artists, programming and outreach through art in public spaces, and events to showcase local artists, ceramicists, sculptors, fiber artists, and woodworkers. 

Celebrating thirty five years in 2021, d’Art was founded in 1986 at the College Place location in downtown Norfolk. Modeled after the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia, part of d’Art’s mission from the onset was to provide working artists with affordable, short-term studio space. In 2005, the d’Art Center relocated to the historic Selden Arcade, continuing a legacy as a vibrant arts organization. The d’Art Center remained at the Selden Arcade for the next ten years.  After an explosion caused major damage to the d’Art Center at the Selden Arcade, the d’Art Center organization recovered, regrouped, and revived itself in the New Energy of Norfolk (NEON) Arts District at its Duke Grace Building location. In 2021, d’Art Center moved into its forever home in the NEON District: The Atlantic Permanent Building.

The NEON District is anchored by the Chrysler Museum of Art, Harrison Opera House, and The d’Art Center, and extends to The Plot on Granby Street. The NEON District includes many creative small businesses and arts partners
