The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
Danielle Giudici Wallis is an artist living and working in Southern California. She received her BA from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio and her MFA from Stanford University where she was the recipient of the Murphy Cadogan Grant, the James Borelli Fellowship in Art, the Anita Squires Memorial Fund in Photography and a fellowship from the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited widely in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond including shows at Catharine Clark Gallery, SFMOMA Artists Gallery, The Bedford Gallery, Raid Projects in Los Angeles, A.I.R. in New York, and The California Palace of the Legion of Honor which holds one of her artist’s books in their Achenbach collection.
Her family’s 2011 relocation to Southern California’s Inland Empire prompted a shift in her work towards social practice. Projects like, “Beating Invasives” at the Riverside Art Museum, brought community members together through papermaking from invasive plants and fostered awareness about environmental stewardship. She also currently serves as the Interim Executive Director to Arts Connection, The Arts Council of San Bernardino County. Her administrative work has become a complementary medium as she explores larger collaborative projects, bringing organizations, people and communities together through the arts.
