In this time of isolation and confinement – when we can often see only a portion of another’s face – we are creating this juried exhibition to celebrate faces – and the people behind them. We would also like to examine the ways in which people mask themselves or masquerade. We are looking to define this genre as broadly as possible: self, other, representational, abstracted, likeness, current, past, psychological, emotional…

We are interested in all forms of mark making; and all media are welcome. The show will be juried by Dr. Kryssi Staikidis, Professor of Art and Design Education at Northern University. The exhibition will run from Oct 28 thru Dec 19, 2020. We encourage everyone to enter (details below).

Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students — High school or college students can pay a reduced fee of $25 per 3 entries with $10 for each additional entry (Please include copy of Student ID)).
