About This Event
Come celebrate on Thursday, March 1 from 6-8PM the opening of our upcoming group show “About Face,” an exhibition of recent portraits created by Fountain House Gallery artists.
“Portraits are a fascinating subject in today’s culture,” said Sasha Nicholas, an independent art historian and curator. “They are everywhere and inspire incredible creative invention, but we seldom pause to think about how complicated it is to make a portrait. Looking at the work of the six featured artists in this show gives us a chance to do just that. Their portraits offer rich, sensitive responses to the individuals they depict, but they also raise profound questions. On a personal note, it has been thrilling to work on this show, which feels like a second chapter to an exhibition of self-portraits I curated at Fountain House Gallery more than 10 years ago. It’s a privilege to collaborate with this talented community of artists.”
“About Face” showcases more than 65 artworks by Fountain House Gallery artists, including acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media.
