ARTIST CALL–Juried Exhibition

UNITED in Passion and Pride.
September 10 - October 22, 2016

This call for visual art is in response to the mass shooting that took the lives of 49 people at the Pulse Night Club, a gay bar in Orlando Florida, in the early morning hours of June 12, 2016.  We are deeply saddened by this attack on the LGBTQ Community and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the people we lost.  This tragedy is multi-layered and as such, this call is open to your interpretation of the title and theme.  All artists are encouraged to enter work.

UNSPEAKABLE
Leslie Holt
Courtesy Curator's Office

“In the Unspeakable series I incorporate imagery from art historical representations of distraught women, including the preparatory sketches for Guernica.  These women are raw emotion.  Some are grotesque, nearly vulgar, with the distortions despair causes, while others are tender and vulnerable.  Stains of saturated acrylic paint hover over the figures like daunting clouds.  The stains hold history and reveal unruly, wordless memories.”  —  Leslie Holt

In her recent series, Unspeakable, Holt embroiders meticulous line drawings of figures sourced from Pablo Picasso´s famous political war lamentation, Guernica (1937), and its preparatory sketches.  Other artistic sources for her figures include the women in Vincent Van Gogh´s Sorrow (1882) and Käthe Kollwitz´s Hunger (1922).  Situating these figures on unprimed canvas beside puddles of dripped paint or on blank grounds, Holt imbues the composition´s negative space and the canvas´s very materiality with ghosts of expunged drama.  The paint stains are substitute loci of crisis; the embroidered lines are umbilical cords to unseen tragedy.  That which is not visible is indeed unspeakable.

CARTOGRAPHIES: INDICTMENTS AND IMPUNITIES
Elizabeth Burden

The works in “Cartographies: Indictments and Impunities” are one reflection on the conundrums connected to killings by police/police killings.  They are abstractions, creative representations that map the spaces and places where individuals have lost their lives, families have mourned, communities have questioned.

ALL THAT WE SEE OR SEEM
A video installation by Tim McLoraine

“Layering video within video, All that we see or seem explores the ways in which our personal histories amass to create the interpretive frameworks for how we live in the world, and the density of narrative that we each bring to both the profound and mundane.”

Tim McLoraine creates video art and experimental film that appears in settings as varied as gallery installations, public art, concert, opera and theater.
