Chiaroscuro – The Art of Light and Dark

Loft Artists Gallery

Entry Deadline: Sep. 19

575 Pacific Street
Stamford, CT 06902

The concept of Chiaroscuro has been evident throughout art history since the 5th C. in Greece, with more extensive use resuming in the 15th C. to today. The use of light (chiaro) and shadow (scuro) assists in creating three dimensionality and drama to two-dimensional works of art. Contemporary use of this technique is found in drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking and photographic works. The use of a single light source assists in creating this effect. All media welcomed; we look forward to your entry!
