Staring Back: Portraiture

Sixth Street Gallery
Vancouver, WA
April 28 - May 31, 2009

The Art of Portraiture
A historical look at the art of portraiture shows a transition in not only the subject and style, but also the goal of the artist. From portrayals of stature, to depictions that provide reflective glimpses that reveal personality and mood, the role of the artist has always been more than just a mimic of nature. Contemporary artists continue to push the definition of the portrait. Staring Back looks to honor this transformation and highlight the ever-expanding scope and definition of the art of portraiture. This juried exhibition will be open to all media & interpretations.

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces for jurying. There is a jury fee of $20. The jury fee is $25 if paid by Paypal. The jury fee is $10 for youth artists 14 years or younger.

Artists may submit slides, photos, or digitals.
