In our selfie-obsessed 21st-century world, what is the meaning of the portrait, self or otherwise? Portraiture has long been its own genre in art, addressed in endless variations and styles, and self-portraits are nothing new as Kolman & Pryor Gallery investigates in its new exhibition, The Portrait Show.
Curated by gallery artist and co-owner, Patrick K. Pryor, The Portrait Show includes work by guest artists, Vesna Kittelson, Charles Thysell, Aaron Kagan Putt, Leslie Barlow, and Julie Buffalohead.
“This show provides us with an excellent opportunity to work with guest artists we love who are not on our regular roster of gallery artists,” says Pryor. “Because portraiture is an essential aspect of art history, we’re thrilled to focus on the genre with artists whose perceptions of portraiture vastly differ from one another.”
