Face 2 Face
Submitted By Christine Bender
The Sun Gallery is proud to host "Face 2 Face," an exhibition celebrating and exploring Portraiture across all disciplines. Portrait painting is a genre in painting where the intent is to depict the visual appearance of the subject. Beside human beings, animals, pets and even inanimate objects can be chosen as the subject for a portrait. In addition to portrait painting, portraits can also be made in other media such as etching, lithography, photography, and even video and digital media.
Historically, portrait paintings have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful. Over time, however, it has become more common for middle-class patrons to commission portraits of their families and colleagues. Today, portrait painting is still commissioned by governments, corporations, groups, clubs, and individuals.
The Sun Gallery is excited to showcase art in all media that celebrates this tradition. Alongside traditional oil painting, watercolors and ceramics, we have some fantastic photographs, both formal and casual, capturing the spirit of the individual depicted. Artists included in the exhibition are: Fleur Spolidor, Susan Sperry, Anne Kohler, Marjorie Wagner, Farshid Namei, Debbie Parkes, Jane Neilson, Chris Triplett, Grace Rankin, Wanda Worthington Kersey, Carol Smith Myer, Patra Nesseth-Steffes, David Nesseth-Steffes, Loretta Siegel, Joanie Miller, Lynn McGeever, Dickson Schneider, and Alex Milarodovich.
In addition to the exhibiting professional artists we are proud to be showing the work of Mt. Eden High School students, organized by instructor Carrie King. Please join us for the Artists' Reception on June 23 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. or drop by and visit while the exhibition is on display. The Sun Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., and we look forward to seeing you here.
