Contemporary Portraiture: Redefining the Figure





“Contemporary portraiture: Redefining the Figure” is an exhibit centered around the human form. Portraiture has traditionally been utilized as a medium to capture and replicate the likeness or expression of a person, yet this age old art form has evolved tremendously since its origins - from DaVinci’s anatomical drawings to visually striking portraits by contemporary painter Amy Sherald. In this online exhibit, we will be exhibiting a wide range of work including representational and abstract interpretations, as well as work by artists who seek to redefine or challenge the genre of portraiture. 

We encourage artists who work in diverse mediums and styles to apply. The follow mediums are accepted: Painting, drawing, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, digital art, photography.

Our guest curator is Erika b Hess, Artist, Curator & Host of the I Like Your Work podcast! Erika has exhibited her work nationally and juried a wide range of exhibits across the U.S.
