July 30th to August 7th, 2020
Artwork selected: 'Double Self-Portrait' (aquatint etching)

'It’s one thing to present your art honestly to the world, it’s quite another to turn that gaze on yourself. We live in the age of the ‘selfie,’ where reality can be pushed through endless filters until every hint of vulnerability is erased. In this show, all filters are removed as each artist presents an artwork that gives the viewer a glimpse of their authentic self. Is it even possible to capture a sense of self when sudden revelation can change everything in a heartbeat?'
