The Loft Artists Association will hold its fourth annual “Drawing Show” exhibition in its Stamford Gallery from May 10th to May 24th. The event features work by member artists — along with people of all ages in the community who participated in a free “Draw On!” workshop at LAA in April — in a collaborative show devoted solely to the art of drawing. The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Friday, May 10th.
Using only pencils, pens and ink, crayons, markers, oil pastels, craypas, oil sticks and charcoal, participants were encouraged to let their creativity run free. “From young children to retired business executives — everyone had an opportunity to express their artistic vision in this unique show,” noted Philippa Lodato-Suppa, an LAA member who chaired the event.
“The Drawing Show IV – Marks On A Page” is brought to the Fairfield County community by LAA to coincide with the annual community drawing festival run by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. This drawing celebration is one of many in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing artists with a supportive environment and opportunities to exhibit their work, while reaching out to the community at large with education and artistic expression, as well as collaborative projects. Celebrating 35 years in the South End, the LAA began as the vision of three artists living and working in the Yale & Towne factory building. Today, it is a growing and dynamic organization, with 50 studio and associate members — producing an “Open Studios” event every November, and multiple gallery shows per year. LAA members exhibit their work locally, nationally, and internationally, and their events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area. LAA has been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, and the City of Stamford.
