Queer Perspectives: A Celebration of LGBTQ+ Life

at The Loft in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, USA
23 June-17 July 2022

The LOFT LGBTQ+ Community Center proudly partnered with Upstream Gallery for “Queer Perspectives”.

Upstream Gallery invited all artists exploring LGBTQ+ themes to submit recent work for a national juried show. Seeking current, creative, personal explorations of LGBTQ+ life, issues, history and culture, the jurors’ aim was to draw attention to and celebrate the less often heard voices and thoughts of this important part of our artistic community. Written statements or quotes by many of the 32 artists are included, adding greater depth and richness to the exhibit.

Judy Troilo, the Executive Director of The LOFT, says their mission is to advocate, educate, celebrate the LGBTQ+ Community, so partnering with Upstream Gallery to showcase LGBTQ+ artists in Westchester and the Hudson Valley Area is something that is deeply important to the cultural visibility of the community.  The LOFT encourages everyone who celebrates PRIDE to consider visiting Upstream Gallery, buying some beautiful artwork, and supporting LGBTQ+ artists.

The jurors were: V.L. Cox, Glenn Fischer, and Mitchel Visoky.
