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, Visionary Art Collective will be showcasing 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.
They encourage artists who work in diverse mediums and styles to apply. Learn more here.
Visionary Art Collective accepts the following mediums: Painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, photography
Their guest curator is Erika b Hess, painter, curator, and host of the I Like Your Work podcast. Erika has exhibited across the United States and gained national recognition for her work as a painter and curator.
