“Lineal Investigations” Juried Exhibition
September 10 - October 11, 2015
575 Pacific Street
Stamford, Connecticut 06902
Lineal

Lineal Investigations will focus new interpretations in line. Lines can be hard, sharp, straight, geometric: they can be organic, smooth, soft, flowing, loopy, wavy. Works can range from traditional graphite and charcoal drawings to works from all mediums ---the key feature is the LINE!

 

Juror: Robbin Zella, Director and curator of the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, CT. From 1998 forward, Zella has organized over 80 exhibitions at Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport that have introduced audiences to works by Ansel Adams, Jenny Holzer, Sol Le Witt, Rembrandt, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, among others.  Robbin previously was the director of Artworks Gallery in Hartford, CT.  During her time at Artworks, she worked to bring greater recognition to the artists cooperative by creating tandem programming that was relative to the time including bringing writers, critics and artists such as  Donald Kuspit, Douglas Davis, Bessy Harvey and Andres Serrano (NEA Four) to the city and developing public art programs like "Off-Season Baseball" with Jerry Beck, a project that included working with diverse communities to create a city-wide event and temporary public art project in Bushnell Park.

 

Now in its 37th year, the Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization of professional working artists dedicated to building connections within the visual arts community and offering many artistic and educational opportunities to the public, free of charge. As an established cultural institution, their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year.
