Every work of art is a process - the end result of trial and error, unexpected discoveries, and the collaboration of maker and materials. Artmaking is a lifelong pursuit, an inquiry whose answers only lead to more questions. At OSA students, instructors, and community members show up week after week to engage in the process and practice of making art. This exhibition highlights the creativity and dedication of the students, instructors and volunteers who gather at OSA to develop their skills, learn new techniques, and exchange ideas.

Process and Practice is open to all students, instructors, and volunteers of OSA who have been active in the last year. Work will be accepted in all media, subject matter, and styles of art.

FEBRUARY 2023Portraits, 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.
