Artist Avenue seeks 2023 artists | News

Artist Avenue is seeking grants for the next round of public art, which will be exhibited in April 2023.

It’s all part of LOLA City Art’s ongoing efforts to bring public art and artistic awareness to Logansport.

Artist Avenue was assembled and presented to the public at the end of April 2022, presenting four original works centered on the theme of “home”.

Artists Michelle Sutton, Adrian Gazcon, Oscar Toloza and Patrick Redmon are featured in Artist Alley’s debut exhibition. Their work is located on 5th Street off The Gray Mill, 500 E. Broadway.

The initial reception was positive, said Mollie Graybeal, co-owner of The Gray Mill and a board member of LoLa.

“I have received comments that the work is of such high quality and top notch,” he said.

LoLa hopes to expand the upcoming exhibition to 10 or more works of art. More art means more space needed, and Graybeal said some of the future works will be shown across the street alongside Bonus Pints. There is also the possibility that another location on 5th Street will be added.

There will be no theme for Artist Avenue’s second round of submissions.

“We want to make sure the project is inclusive for people who want to try to participate,” Graybeal said. “We have discussed many times whether having a theme would hold people back. We have decided to go in a different direction and I am excited to see what kind of artwork we will get. “

The selected art remains the property of the artist and they are free to sell the work during the exhibition (although it must remain on display until the end of the exhibition). Thereafter, LoLa will sell the remaining art unless the artist requests otherwise. Artists are guaranteed all the money from the sale of their art minus 20% that will go to future exhibitions and the improvement of Artist Avenue.

Graybeal said she likes that Artist Avenue feels like an outdoor-only formal art gallery in a casual, easily accessible venue.

“Who would have thought that filling that simple brick wall would be so transformative,” he said. “I think that’s the beauty of these art projects. They always work best in forgotten places. This is what brings the joy of the community. You can take any small corner of the city and flip the view over it.
