Identity Transfer

 Main Gallery, St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre
Opening Reception: Saturday January 14, 2012 2-4pm
It's a rare artist that hasn’t at one time or another attempted a self-portrait. Sometimes its for the most obvious reason, that in portraying his/herself has a ready, willing and free model. At other times artists may use self-portraits to advertise their skills, practice their craft, explore some inner turmoil or stake a place in history. Whatever reason the artist might think they had for the work, the act of creation always reveals something about the creator. Its always possible to learn a little more about the artist by reading between the brush-strokes or medium.
