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.
