Portraits (part 1)


Preview Evening: Friday 3rd March 6.30pm – 8.30pm

continues: Sat 4th – Sun 12th March, 11.00am – 4.00pm (closed Mon & Tues)

Portrait: a painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person.

Is it possible for a work that appears to be entirely abstract to be considered a portrait?

How can an artist evoke a human presence ?

How might memory, emotion, the relationship between person and place, the link between artist and sitter be most vividly expressed?

Artistsworkhouse is delighted to be hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Portraits. (Part 1)’ 20 artists working in both 2D and 3D will be taking part. Each has developed a personal visual language of portraiture, challenging traditional forms of representation.

To complement the Portrait (part 1) exhibition Artistsworkhouse will be hosting 2 workshops:

Louise Blakeway Portraiture Workshop, Tuesday 7th March. The opportunity to work directly from a model, in a variety of both short and long poses to develop both analytical drawing skills and an expressive, experimental approach to life drawing. Full details HERE Includes private viewing of ‘Portrait part 1’ Exhibition.

Helena Godwin – March, Saturday 11th – Portraits in sculpture. In this workshop we will be exploring how to depict the face in 3D, using various materials and techniques both traditional and modern.Full details HERE
