Six in the Mix: Selections by Renee Stout brings together a divergent company of D.C. and Baltimore's emerging and mid-career artists for Hillyer Art Space's summer program. This show will feature the work of Cianne Fragione, Kenyatta Hinkle, Adam Griffiths, Marc Roman, James Swainbank, and Gilbert Trent.

Stout has set out to create a mixed bag of local talent not based in the obligatory conceptual framework predominantly exhibited in group shows. Instead of the varying inspiration and ideas behind the individual bodies of work, it is the "natural dialogue that may occur between these works" which Stout would like the audience to experience.
