Me, Myself and I?
Juried Self-Portrait Exhibition
July 19, 2019 - August 31, 2019
A self-portrait is a representation of an artist that is drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted by that artist. Artists have been making self-portraits since the earliest of times, sometimes depicting themselves as the main subject or as important characters in their work.
Me, Myself and I? is an exhibition of self-portraits with all the works depicting the artist that produced it. The exhibit, juried by noted local artist and educator, Ron White, is open to all artists working a variety of mediums, such as sculpture, painting, drawing, and photography. Both 2D and 3D works will be accepted.
All styles of self portrait are encouraged including realism, abstraction, representational, self-portraiture, traditional, conceptual and modern are encouraged. Artists are encouraged to use this exhibition to fully explore their own image and provide the exhibition audience with a inside view of the Me, Myself and I? hidden inside.
Juror Ron White is known for his captivating and often haunting images, often of himself, that allow the viewer a glimpse of his view of the world, how he is affected by what he sees, and how he wants you to view both his work and him.
