Hearts On Their Sleeves

Artists’ Valentines

Exhibition February 7 - March 7, 2015
Wednesday - Saturday, 12:00 - 4:00pm
Drezner Gallery

Romantic love has been the subject of art throughout the ages from the Enlightenment to Keith Haring, but much contemporary artwork eschews the romantic in favor of the ironic. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, and the tradition of valentine giving as an anonymous act, the Farmington Valley Arts Center invited artists to wear their hearts on their sleeves, and to create their own valentines - however specific or expansive, however romantic or ironic.
