Contemporary Portrait: A National Juried Exhibition

Portraits are a long-standing genre of fine art: always evolving and changing in style and media. LHUCA seeks artworks that broaden the definition of portraiture and its relevance in contemporary art. Portraits can be more than simply visual recognition and resemblance: they can offer a conceptual interpretation of the theme through a diverse range of media and creative possibilities. This will be LHUCA’s 4thannual juried exhibition.

Harlem Renaissance: Charles Alston and Jacob Lawrence with Christian Conrad

Harlem Renaissance: Charles Alston (1907-1977) and Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000)

Also working as an illustrator, Alston created images for magazines like the New Yorkerand Mademoisellein addition to designing album covers for Duke Ellington. Alston’s importance extends to his teaching, where he influenced and taught a generation of artists including Jacob Lawrence. Lawrence continued his teacher’s cubist style in his epic “Migration Series,” a work with 60 panels. Join us as we examine the work of these two great artists and the connections they made to the other artists of their time.Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists.
