White Gallery – DAAS@ACT  A DAAS Member Collective
Arts for ACT Gallery and DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts are joining forces to bring you an exciting collaborative exhibition. DAAS@ACT will feature the works of approximately 25 artists who are currently members of DAAS CO-OP.    

“This is the first time we collaborate with Arts for ACT as an entity. As individual artists, many DAAS members have contributed to their fundraising events or exhibited at the ACT gallery. This [exhibit] will be like bringing a little DAAS into ACT Gallery.” – comments Xavier Brignoni, who is one artists members and co-founder of the cooperative gallery. “We will feature paintings, sculptures and even a selection of artistic jewelry from the members.” – concludes Brignoni, who also serves as vice-president of DAAS CO-OP.
