Members Art Share: "How I See Myself"
Frida Kahlo did it. Picasso did it. We all do it. We depict ourselves in our work — albeit our likeness, or the abstract — as a window to who we are as women and as artists. Bring your self-portrait to share @Holly Stone's house (Bethesda) for a rousing salon-style gathering of art and discussion!
Time & Location
May 22, 2022, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
Holly Stone's home. RSVP for address.
About the Event
Self-depictions in art history date back to the Early Renaissance, even before mirrors were a thing to behold. Women artists have historically embodied a number of roles within their self-portraiture. Most common is the artist at work, showing themselves in the act of painting, or at least holding a brush and palette. Often, the viewer wonders if the clothes worn were those they normally painted in, as the elaborate nature of many ensembles was an artistic choice to show her skill at fine detail. What about you? Is your self-portrait of your likeness, or does it embody the essence of your nature in the abstract? Join the group on May 22nd at Holly Stone's house in Bethesda for a rousing salon-style gathering. The first 10 to be registered will be able to present their work.
