The Self-Portrait
January 16 – February 23
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 16, 5:30–7 p.m.
What is a self-portrait? Is it a mirror image of the artist, a psychological reflection? In Contemporary Art, the self-portrait has freed itself from the figural and literal to delve into the abstract, digital, conceptual and beyond traditional mediums. This exhibition will take a journey into the experience of ‘self’ and the boundless ways this can be expressed.


February 27 – April 3
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 27, 5:30–7 p.m.
Zines (shortened from the word “magazines”) are small, independent publications that come in the form of mini pamphlets or DIY magazines and have long been an underground or counter-cultural vehicle for personal and political expression. This exhibit celebrates zines from a variety of sources and collections.
