Call to painters: “The Art of Performance” exhibition

Call to painters: “The Art of Performance” exhibition

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, March 16, 2019

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts…” —As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII, by William Shakespeare.

A ballet dancer flits across the stage, while backstage, each performer waits for her cue. At a theater, the actors run lines in their dressing rooms and prepare their costumes. A storyteller in Australia passes down the stories of his ancestors around the fire. On a film set, the directors and crew work together to capture the nuances of the actors’ emotions and create a story. There is not one of us who has not been touched by the performing arts; whether by being part of it, or enjoying the stories and experiences that they produce.

The Art of Performance is an event that celebrates both the visual arts, and the performing arts. We will have a curated art exhibition of paintings that relate to the performing arts, and also a special 35 minute performance by actors from the Actor’s Lab drawing from material that deals with themes of visual arts. To find out more about the Actor’s Lab, click here. In this unique exchange we honor and give vibrance to both art forms.

There will be light refreshments for guests, and the event is free and open to the public!

The Art of Performance art exhibition will be held at the Actor’s Lab at 110 West Lancaster Ave, #150, Wayne, PA 19087 on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 6 to 9pm. The performance by Actor’s Lab students will begin at 8pm. For the curated art exhibition, all artwork that deals with the performing arts such as dance, theater, film, spoken word, miming, or more, will be considered. All work must be in 2 dimensional media, within the dimensions of 30″ in any direction and properly framed or presented. Entry fee for submitting up to 3 paintings is $20. Submission of work is not guarantee of showing.

My life and my perceptions are the subjective drivers for the pictures I make. Making a painting is, for me, an exploratory process toward understanding, not an expository declaration of a position already held.

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.
