ABOUT THE LATIN NETWORK FOR THE VISUAL ARTS


The Latin Network for the Visual Arts (LNVA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit art organization whose mission is to enrich the community through the visual arts created by contemporary Latin artists.  That is, artists whose roots lie in countries where the Romance Languages are spoken. The LNVA receives its financial support primarily from private donations, but also from grants from several philanthropic foundations and offers all its educational and cultural events at no cost to the community.  Latin Views 2012 will be LNVA’s sixth major international exhibition.  The Latin Views biennial exhibits have been instrumental in presenting the art from over 150 Latin artists to the community representing more than 25 different countries.
Through its Latin Views biennial exhibitions, the LNVA has established its identity in the international community and through a series of other bilingual programs; it has also developed a strong local presence serving the community. 

Latin Views 2012

Sixty artists, from 18 countries were selected by a jury composed of Liz Munsell, Fred Osborne, Elena Patino, Julia Pavone and Mimi Daumy.

One juror noted, “The Latin Views 2012 artists selected for this year’s exhibition reflect a great variety of expressions. The exhibit does not favor any one medium or aesthetic style, but rather it assembles a wide range of individual expressions, personal histories and random encounters that speak to a sense of openness and community.”

The Biennial exhibit is the Latin Network for the Visual Arts’ panoramic survey of contemporary art created by Latin artists.  It includes a blend of well-established artists together with emerging artists from all over the Latin world.  Their works range from photography, painting, sculpture, drawing and mixed media. 

The exhibit will be on display at the Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art at the University of Connecticut's Avery Point Campus from September 15th through October 26th, with an opening reception on Friday, Sept. 21 from 6-8pm and a "Meet the Artists" Event on Sat. Sept. 22nd from 12-1pm.. 

The gallery hours are Wed. – Sun. 12-4 pm
