CALL For Art
Demographically Speaking, a Figurative Exhibition at Lexington Art League
Curated by Daniel Pfalzgraf, of the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, IN.
Deadline for submissions: December 9, 2016
Interested artists, please download Demographically Speaking Call For Art for details, and complete the Artist Submission Survey (.docx or .pdf)
While representations of the figure are at the forefront of this exhibition, Pfalzgraf lends a unique perspective to this exhibition by also requiring that artists complete a survey to accompany their work that focuses on diversity. The Lexington Art League’s mission is to reflect diversity and inclusion in all of their exhibitions and intends that this exhibition will reflect the vibrance of its community through the inclusion of works that speak to a diverse audience.

Darrell Lewis Ishmael graduated from the University of Kentucky and studied at The University of Hawaii and Kentucky State University. Largely self-taught as an artist, he participates in frequent workshops and studio sessions with fellow artists and explores the creative process in a variety of mediums including metal work and clay sculpture. He has exhibited in numerous shows, both solo and group, and has work in private and commercial collections nationwide. Artistic creations utilize natural materials such as Kentucky River sand, Appalachian coal, and limestone bits, sculpted together by artist molding paste. Rich colors and lustrous depth is achieved by multi-layered acrylic glazes filtered through the fissures of the textured surface.
