It is said that all work by an artist is a self-portrait. As artists, in the act of creating an image, idea, or object we represent ourselves, our psyche, our history. In revealing ourselves to an audience, we are either reflecting ourselves to our audience, or the reverse. It is obvious with a self-portrait, but when we represent another subject the artist puts his own spirit on that image, calling to mind their own hand, their personal choices.
An artist chooses a medium or mediums that most represent the comfort they feel with it, but they are prone to pushing boundaries and stretching themselves to continually grow within their choices or in covering new ground. This is an exhibit of artists pushing the boundaries within their chosen medium, all of whom reflect themselves in their work by way of the “stories” they chose to tell, leaving their audience with questions more than answers.
Refreshments will be served.
