The Association of Plastic Artists of Puerto Rico (AAPPR), announces its Third Biennial Salon, an exhibition titled Pigments in which 58 Puerto Rican artists will participate “who will be united one night with their works of art”, indicates the organization in a press release.
The exhibition, which will be open to the public on Friday, August 4, at 7:00 pm at the Casa Escuté Museum, in Carolina, includes the categories of painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture, stained glass, mosaic, photography and digital art, in a night full of music and culture.
“Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artists in person and discover the secrets behind their creations, with the possibility of acquiring a unique and significant piece,” the statement said.
According to the information, The concept of the Biennale Salon dates back to the 18th century in Paris, France, in 1725, “a showcase for the artists of the time that was visited by critics and art collectors from all over Europe”. Exhibitions that became a platform for artists to make themselves known, show their work and network with other artists.
“For at least 200 years, the exhibition at the Paris Salon was essential for any artist who wanted to succeed. It was the meeting of the most outstanding artists of the moment and even the refusal to exhibit in this Salon gave rise to impressionist movements led by artists such as Monet, Renoir and Degas.
As art evolves, the biennial salons have also adapted to changes and trends in many countries, as well as globally relevant social, political and environmental themes and approaches.
According to the information supplied, The AAPPR, through its Biennial Salon, “wants to open doors to new voices and artistic diversity and that all plastic artists have the opportunity to gain visibility on the art scene in all its forms.”
It is also indicated that, as in the past, there will be a jury and prizes will be awarded in each category. “We are extremely proud of our artists, who this year 2023 have surprised with great and captivating works.”
The event, according to information, will pay homage to the decade of Afro-descendants, under the title of PIGMENTS. The activity is free of charge and will include music and a cocktail. More information at www.aapprinc.org/
