Spaceless in 2014
Happy New Year! Welcome to year eight of Civilian Art Projects, not that we are counting because every year is new. But, as you may or may not know, some major changes are underway. The biggest change was Civilian moving out of its gallery space at 1019 7th Street and going spaceless and nomadic for 2014. Civilian started in December 2006 as a “roving gallery project” and now we go back to our roots.
Please stay in touch with us via Facebook, Twitter or email.

If you haven’t already heard about our new exhibition Permanent Summer, running until September 7, you might be living under a rock. With killer reviews in the Washington Post and the Washington City Paper, DC agrees that this is one show not to miss!
The show features screen printed works by 30 artists who primarily use vibrant color and bold hand drawn imagery- a collection of modern pop psychedelia including band posters, art prints and installations.
Permanent Summer is a collective scream from the void… a blazing hot kiss of bright, fluorescent energy, beamed from the beyond… from the children who grew older but never grew up. The show is a survey of bright, wild, ‘out there’ minds, perched on the edge and armed with ink, squeegees, paper, and the combined willpower to not conform to shit.
Curated by Michelle Cable (panache booking), Rob Corradetti (killer acid), and Mike Zimmerman.

Civilian Art Projects is pleased to present three new exhibitions, including photographs by Cynthia Connolly, a video projection by recent Corcoran graduate Pamela Hadley; and, in the project space, new works on canvas and paper by Baltimore artist, Cara Ober.

Public exhibition hours are Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday, May 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Civilian Art Projects.
