Artists The Loft Artists Association Presents Visual Narratives, 4th Annual Tri-State Juried Exhibition. August 26 – September 24, 2017. Award Ceremony and Reception: September 8, 2017. 575 Pacific Street, Stamford, CT 06902. Deadline for entries: July 24, 2017. All artists create visual languages to convey narratives and concepts that are important to them. These languages establish a formal construct which can be representational or abstract. As such they create a unique way of communicating ideas. Historically, artists have used their personal lexicon to express religious, political, historical or spiritual ideas. Some famous artists who have created their own discourse around visual narratives include Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, David Salle, Kiki Smith, and Louise Bourgeois. Other artists who use an abstract approach to creating their dialogue, include Eva Hesse, Barnett Newman, Joseph Albers, and Lee Bontecou. Contemporary artists can reference the real world directly or they can create a singular language devised, codified, presented, performed, and understood only by the artist themselves and their followers. The show Visual Narratives explores these artistic imagined and created world views, lexicons, and visual languages, which are at the heart of this exhibition. Participating artworks are considered from all media. Click here for Prospectus. For additional information:
