Love has endured as one of the most common topics in creative expression. Love and Things Like Love is an exhibition exploring the topic of love, from the poignant to the profane, from the heartfelt to the humorous. Artists are encouraged to investigate questions regarding the meaning of love such as: What does love look like? Is love a universal concept? What is love's relevance to contemporary society? How do we experience love on a personal, familial, spiritual or societal level? Artwork may address a wide range of topics including (but not limited to) loss, nurturing, compassion, intimacy, disconnect, affection, or longing. LAL invites artists to openly and creatively interpret the theme.Artists may submit images and/or videos of their work along with an entry form, exhibition statement, and resume for consideration. All media will be considered.
