The show has a wonderful selection of portraits and you will enjoy learning about different panting styles and themes the painters dealt with. Some portraits are abstract with color blocks telling the story of the person being portrayed; some portrait are realistic and every wrinkle on a person's face will be exposed to your viewing. In some portraits, the artists give you an insight into who they are. In others, you will see a painter's interpretation of a famous person.
Below are several examples that caught my attention. I find it pretty exciting to read the description next to each painting and then think of the person portrayed and their particular story. I also find that at looking at a portrait, I am internally investigating my own experience and thoughts.
Check the exhibition out! It is on display until January 2015.
