In conjunction with Month of Photography Denver, Photography Unsettled showcases the wide range in contemporary artists’ practices which feature photography in some way, as well as the many mediums of art which are fusing with photography so that it belongs less and less to a specific medium or category. Mixed media works, alternative processes, and far-reaching concepts are all represented within the exhibition.  Artworks Loveland is one of over 100 galleries participating in Month of Photography Denver 2017. 

Traditional photography practices are revisited in the form of altered tintypes, while some photographers took a more modern direction by transforming their photos digitally. Other artists chose to physically manipulate their surfaces by drawing directly on them or employing the use of acrylic or other media to give the surface new life. These unconventional approaches to an ever-changing medium are helping to keep the medium of photography contemporary.  

This national juried group exhibit features 22 artists from ten states, each with a unique interpretation of the theme. Featured artists explored the term “unsettled” through their technique as well as concept. Some artists feel that their work is “unsettled” because of its political nature, the feeling that the work evokes in the viewer, or the expression of an unsettling feeling in the artist’s own personal life.
