FEBRUARY 2023:

Portraits, Figures & Selfies
Non-Juried Exhibition

Open to the public

PORTRAITS, FIGURES & SELFIES

FEBRUARY 2 - 23, 2023
ONLINE VIEWING: FEBRUARY 3 - APRIL 6, 2023

The Gallery at OSA is excited to announce Portraits, Figures, and Selfies, an exhibition featuring the wide range of experimental forms, compositions, and subjects featured in contemporary figure painting. Since ancient times, artists have attempted to capture the aura, personality, humor, and beauty of humanity through representational, abstract, and anatomical art. The figure remains one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects to represent in both form and concept.

In Portraits, Figures, and Selfies we want to see your interpretations of the figure, human or otherwise! Whether drawn, painted, sculpted, or photographed, we invite works that delve into the psyche, reflect the self, or depict the body.
