Stamford, CT (May 5, 2008) – Can the personal and professional be separated? This summer, the male artists of the LAA come together in a show exploring the idea of pivotal moments in an artist's life. How do certain episodes in an artist's life affect his work? Does the art take a different direction or does technique change? This exhibit highlights how art changes over time.

The show presents multiple pieces by each artist. By viewing work created on either side of this "pivotal moment", similarities and differences emerge. The exhibition invites us to look at how certain life passages can sharpen and inform an artist's vision.

The LAA houses a diverse group of working artists. Sculptors, ceramicists, painters, collage artists, metalworkers and audio engineers share space in a funky, industrial building on Canal Street. The artists can drop in on each other or close their doors to concentrate on work. The LAA gallery is located on the second floor of the building and features new work from members as well as visiting artists. Visitors to the gallery are welcome to look in on those artists who are working in their studios.

"I'm seeing some of the most exciting new work that's been done around here in a long time. And it's nice to see all of the new faces showing up at the gallery each weekend. It's exciting!" says Alan Judelson, LAA member.

An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, June 6th, 2008, from 6-9 pm. Members of the public are invited to attend. This exhibit features the work of David Burt, Ed Esposito, SANDY GARNETT, Alan Judelson, John Newcomb, Kevin Robinson, Jeremy Schockley, Kevin Thomas, and Hoby Rosen.

Artists participating in this show will donate 20% of all sales to LAA’s neighbor, the Shelter for the Homeless, a men's shelter at 597 Pacific Street, Stamford CT. www.shelterforhomeless.org/

The Loft Artists Association, a non–profit organization, has resided in the south end of Stamford for over 30 years. This year the group, with the support of Antares Development and Mayor Dannel Malloy, moved to their new home at on Canal Street.
