Event Description

Work on exhibit 10am-3pm daily Sun, Jan 12th, 2020 - Fri, Jan 24th, 2020 Portraiture is a very old art form going back at least to ancient Egypt, where it flourished from about 5,000 years ago. Before the invention of photography, a painted, sculpted, or drawn portrait was the only way to record the appearance of someone. But portraits have always been more than just a record. They have been used to show the power, importance, virtue, beauty, wealth, taste, learning or other qualities of the sitter. These nuances of a painting are what makes portraiture so fascinating. This show features portraits and self -portraits done by our members. It's introspective, interesting, and only comes around every few years.
