The opening and exhibition will be free and open to the public. In her curator’s statement, Marta says, “The self portrait can be a theme explored in depth or a study to be set aside. In any case, it gives witness to the artist’s times, changes and experiences from her particular point of view.” In work that ranges from eerily calm to bursting with color, the artists have used mixed media, wire and glass; paintings; oil; clay; photography; quilt; mixed media; video; white-line woodcut and other materials and techniques to express their varying views.
