LEXINGTON The annual and ever-popular human figure exhibit, this year entitled Demographically Speaking, a Figurative Exhibition, returns to Lexington Art League, (LAL) beginning on January 13, 2017 with an opening preview party, sponsored in part by MD-Update, and features an interactive video installation by Nick Warner, a Lexington digital artist. The exhibit runs through February 24, 2017.
This evocative exhibition, curated by Daniel Pfalzgraf, chief curator of the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, In., poses the question, “Whose stories are being told in the art world?”
Pfalzgraf brings a new and unique perspective to the traditional figure or nude show by aiming to provoke audiences to consider the diversity of our cities, our region, and our country through stories of identity told through art.
“We are excited to bring this exhibit that will be full of surprises and extraordinary works of art made by a dynamic and compelling group of the region’s finest artists,” says Stephanie Harris, LAL executive director. “This will be one of a kind and not to be missed.”
Lexington Art League is a visual arts organization which envisions a world where art and art-making are central to human inspiration, self-realization and meaning. The LAL’s mission is to challenge, educate, and engage the community through visual art and the advancements of local artists. The LAL is located at the Loudon House gallery in Castlewood Park in Lexington.
