Self portraits have likely been made for as long as humans have created art, but is wasn’t until the Early Renaissance in the mid-15th century that artists fully embraced depicting themselves as the main subject. Building on this long tradition of artist self-portraits, we have invited several gallery artists to create their own for display in our gallery. We wanted to find out how our artists view themselves.
Other than size, we have imposed no limits. Expect anything from serious to humorous and in a wide range of styles. We’d like you to vote on your favorite piece over the course of the show. You can vote in the gallery or online. Will their self-portrait reflect what you see on the outside or reveal some deeper truth? There will definitely be some surprises. The Self Portrait Invitational Show runs the entire month of September.
