Expressions: Contemporary Portraiture
Deadline: February 21, 2014
Exhibition: April 2 - 26
Opening Reception: April 4
Historically, portraiture has relied heavily on artistic interpretation of the subject. Photographs, while still embracing the artist’s point of view, record selected surroundings and fractions of seconds. This allows for a different kind of interpretation; one based on real-life context rather than medium and imagination. For Expressions: Contemporary Portraiture The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs of the self or of others that capture the expression, personality, or mood of the subject.
For this exhibition, juror Robin Rice will select up to 25 images for display in the main gallery, and up to an additional 35 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced and will receive a free copy of the catalogue.
All photographic media are encouraged.
About the Juror
Robin Rice’s mission is simple: to document the world around her in a cinematic way. Whether capturing the innate beauty of tucked-away South American landscapes or the reflective moments of unknowing subjects, her photographs are always candid. As a photographer, Robin has an earthy and bohemian way of portraying people and situations that is reflective of the way she lives life. When she is not searching for inspiration from local people and places around the world, she runs The Robin Rice Gallery in New York City. As an artist who feels lucky to be able to parlay her love of the photographic medium into a career, she treats her gallery like a family rather than a business and is dedicated to supporting the work of established and local artists.
