The Self-Portrait
October 17 – November 15, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 17, 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.
