“Influences”

 

Short Description: “Influences” will be a juried show for the Loveland Artists Collective Members  and other regionally located artists, that asks for submissions of 2D and 3D work inspired by an influence, or Influencer,  of the creating artist.  The “influence” can be represented in style, subject matter or artistic process.  The show will be hosted by Artspace Loveland Arts Campus located in downtown Loveland, Colorado, and will run from September 1st -September 30th, 2020. Deadline for submission is July 31st, 2020. 

 

Long Description: All of us have influences that color our lives.  A mother, father, best friend, boss, celebrity, historic figure, etc.….Influences can also come in the form of cultural elements, art movements, technology and even location.  Human-kind is designed for interaction and connection, thus, having outside influencers is par for the course.  Often, we don’t spend time considering the influences in our lives, leaving our motivations and the “why” of our story a mystery to ourselves and others.  What if we took a moment to ponder and consider our influences and influencers?  This art exhibit seeks to create a moment of pause for not only the artists included but also the attendees of the show. 

 

“Influences” will be a juried show for the Loveland Artists Collective Members   and other regionally located artists, that asks for submissions of 2D and 3D work inspired by an influence of the creating artist.  The “influence” can be represented in style, subject matter or artistic process.  The manifestation of this concept is free to the creativity of the participating artists.
