Call For Artists: Portraits, Figures, & Selfies

Oregon Society of Artists Announces:
Portraits, Figures, & Selfies: A Show Celebrating Portraiture in the Pacific Northwest
Gallery Exhibition: February 3 – 23, 2022
Online Exhibition: February 4 – April 6, 2022

Join us in celebrating the figure at Oregon Society of Artists! As long as artists have been creating, the human figure has been a central theme in the arts. Ranging from representational to abstract, anatomical to conceptual, artists have been capturing the aura, personality, humor, and beauty of humanity since ancient times. Whether drawn, painted, sculpted, or photographed, we want to see your depictions of the figure!

This is a non-juried show, open to the public.
