Laurel Arts 11th Triennial Show

Building Bridges

Whether those two words are seen as verbs, or nouns, think of the positivity they suggest. How might your artwork reflect a spirit of uniting people, places, ideas, or suggest a particular concern for “divisions” you recognize?

To build is active, sometimes challenging work. To bridge means reaching out to get across, to link, to connect. What would your bridges look like? Are they existing structures, or perhaps even metaphorical with layers of meaning? What would you mend, bring together, or discard? The visual interpretation is up to you, with full license to explore your medium and imagination.

Artists are sometimes lauded as “shape-makers, symbol collectors, and entertainers,” said Edger Whitney, artist-teacher.

This exhibit will be on display from June 22 through August 5, 2021. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 2nd, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
