JOIN US FOR A BRUNCH AND OPENING RECEPTION OF BEDFORD GALLERY'S SPRING JURIED EXHIBITION ABOUT FACE ON APRIL 15 FROM 12 - 2 PM!
About Face, a juried and invitational exhibition, continues the fascinating tradition of creating portraits, using a contemporary lens to speculate how future generations might perceive the way we value beauty, power, and ultimately what we hold culturally significant. The practice of creating portraits dates back nearly 12,000 years to the Neolithic era. What began as plastered human skulls has evolved into paintings, photographs, and sculpture that not only capture the likeness of an individual, but also provide clues about the cultural and societal context in which the person lived.
