Five of artist Jason Herr's works still haven't returned from the gallery where they hung during Art Basel events in Miami, but it's hard to see where they'd fit in his studio on PCA&D's fourth floor.

Lit by late-afternoon winter sun slanting through a wall of windows, the corner studio already is full of paintings, their bold lines and vibrant colors popping from the white background of wall behind them.

Two pieces soon are heading to a show in Los Angeles. Others are headed to an exhibit at Little Berlin in Philadelphia, being curated by PCA&D Directions in Contemporary Art Adjunct Henry Gepfer. And all of the art covering the studio walls has been created during Herr's tenure in PCA&D's first-ever Fine Art Alumni Residency.

For Larissa Ramey, making her art and building a creative life is just part of the goal:

Finding ways to make that art available to communities that aren't always included in "the art world," or who don't often have access to art, is just as crucial. And it's what makes the Leesburg, Va.-based Ramey so excited about what online artistic communities can offer.

Since graduating last year from PCA&D with her BFA in Photography, Ramey has joined Darkside Collective. There, her role as administrative partner involves branding, social media, being on the looking for emerging talent, and handling outreach to other creatives and collectives. Founded by Nat Raum, whom Ramey met four years ago at a Society for Photographic Education Conference in Florida, Darkside Collective is an online space that provides artistic critiques, in-person meetups, visibility, and career resources.

And now it's published its first zine, Map to the Darkside, juried on the theme of "place."

What's it like to build that new community of creatives once you've graduated from art college -- and what role can the digital world play in helping artists find each other and reach audiences who wouldn't find them easily otherwise?

Here's Ramey's experience:
