Last chance to enter The Artist WithIN
Today at 5pm is the submission deadline for the all Gay art exhibit brought to you by outCT. The show will feature the range of artwork created by our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer community. Details are on outCT.org.
The purpose of the exhibit is to kick off Pride month by featuring our community of Queer artists but there is no theme for subject matter. Submissions have been rolling in featuring still life, landscapes, sculpture and activist art.
The opening reception for the exhibit is at 7pm on Saturday, June 7 at Expressiones Cultural Center in New London, CT. Join us!
Migration, the journey continues
There comes a time in life when you must leave a place, a person, a belief or a culture behind and venture out on your own. You must abandon all that is familiar and bravely explore what is beyond your realm of experience. This is the thought behind the second work in the Migration series.
The piece captures the moment of leaving the known to travel toward the unknown. It evokes the visceral sense of what it means to leave a group and how that dynamic is forever altered. The explorer is only one of the entities affected, those who are left behind are changed in their own way as the butterfly affect takes wing. Once something is left it cannot be unabandoned.
Abandonment is made of cotton and encaustic on a birch panel. More images and alternate views can be seen at PaintDragon.com.
