Through the Looking Glass: The Portrait of the Artist
This exhibition explores the tradition of self-portraits and portraits of artists in variety of mediums including drawings, prints and photography. Involved in creative pursuits, artists become interesting candidates for portrait subjects and self-portraits allow for the artist to make a unique statement about themselves. With traditional commissioned portraits the expectation is a favorable likeness of the sitter, however an artist’s self portrait or a portrait of the artist reveals more than the sitter’s physical appearance removing the conventional constraints and allowing for more experimentation.
The venue is at Lander Art Center, 224 Main St. For more information, please contact: 307-332-5772 or visit their website at www.landerartcenter.com
