Latino Arts BLEND requests submissions of original art (bi-dimensional and tri-dimensional) for the Annual LAB Exhibit 2022 at The Lexington Art League. This exhibit aims to promote and showcase the art of Hispanic artists from or have a direct connection to countries in Latin America.
Latino Art BLEND is an annual exhibition whose aim is to introduce all of Lexington's communities to the diversity and quality of Hispanic artistic expression in our city. All visual artists of Hispanic origin are invited to submit work to the exhibition, and since its inception in 2011, more than three times as many artists now participate. The audience for the exhibit has grown as well. Each year Latino Art BLEND moves to a new venue, not only to accommodate more visitors but also to expand its reach.
This show is both an opportunity for Hispanic artists to exhibit their work and a chance for Lexington visitors and residents — including the artists — to experience the cultural values and variety of aesthetic approaches embodied in the Latin-American community.
This exhibition is open to any artists born in or have ties to Hispanic countries.
Art must be original pieces and ready to hang or display on pedestals (pedestal provided by BLEND)
A maximum of four entries per artist is permitted.
