EXHIBITION THEME: “About Face” (Jan 5th – Jan 29th, 2019)

ABOUT FACE: These two words can simply mean “Pertaining to the face or front of someone or something”. It is also a common expression as in “A complete change of opinion or policy; or a turn made as to face the opposite direction.

Either way this theme is taken, we know artists have such distinct ways of representing the same underlying theme within their works that we can expect to see a varied array of art and we will be able to compare the methods and journeys artists use to convey the same underlying theme. The artworks that are inspired by “About Face” may prove to comment on our turbulent times or give us cause to turn in the opposite, more introspective direction.

2-D and 3-D work will be considered.
