"ABOUT FACE: Through Artistic Eyes"

November 4, 2021 - January 7, 2022


An expressive personality and portraiture art show depicting unique perspectives through an artists’ eyes. Artists are asked to search beyond the ordinary to develop compelling visuals that evoke thought, passion, as well as hardship, conflict, and spiritual freedom. Are portraits that simple? Or do they transition beyond all things around us that include both animate to inanimate forms? “About Face: Through Artistic Eyes” asks artists to take us through that journey.
