Description

ME, MYSELF AND I?
JURIED SELF-PORTRAIT EXHIBITION
ARTIST PANEL DISCUSSION
AUGUST 29, 2019, 7 PM

Come hear the artists in the Me, Myself and I? exhibition talk about creating themselves in a visual medium on Thursday, Aug. 29, 7 p.m. in the main Summit Artspace on East Market gallery. Visit the show before the panel; gallery opens at noon. Please reserve your seat through Eventbrite registration.

A self-portrait is a representation of an artist that is drawn, painted, photographed or sculpted by that artist. Artists have been making self-portraits since the earliest of times, sometimes depicting themselves as the main subject or as important characters in their work.

On display July 19-Aug. 31, Me, Myself and I? is an exhibition of self-portraits with the works depicting the artists who produced the pieces. The exhibit is juried by noted local artist and educator, Ron White and will feature a variety of mediums, such as sculpture, painting, drawing, and photography.

Visitors will see all styles of self depictions, including realism, abstraction, representational, self-portraiture, traditional, conceptual and modern. Artists have been encouraged to use this exhibition to fully explore their own image and provide the exhibition audience with a inside view of the Me, Myself and I? hidden inside.

JUROR RON WHITE

Juror Ron White is known for his captivating and often haunting images, often of himself, that allow the viewer a glimpse of his view of the world, how he is affected by what he sees, and how he wants you to view both his work and him.
