_i_First Person__i_ - A Juried Exhibition of Self-Portraits
Portraits respond to our basic human impulse to look at faces and to try to see more deeply into the character behind them. Self-Portraits have the added fascination of the element of self-reflection. Some artists look into the mirror to render their own likeness, others look inward to portray something metaphoric. The challenge of presenting to the world a visual representation of self has proved irresistible to artists throughout history. This exhibition will further investigate that exploration.
