A Portrait by Any Other Name

Heliconian visual artists were invited to contribute visual portraits of any subject in any media, to confirm the genre’s relevance in an age of selfies and AI.  All club members were invited to contribute pen portraits, or character sketches, to the exhibit as well. The work on display may originate from encounters between the artist and herself, her subject or her imagination. 

Visitors are encouraged to think about portraiture’s potential for reflecting essence and ideas. In the words of the artist, Eileen Powers:

"At its most universal, a portrait is the essence of the subject, but that subject is not limited to people;
a portrait can be any reflection of an essence or idea."

Join us for the Reception on Saturday, April 6, 2 – 5 pm.

A second public opening is on Wednesday April 10, 4 – 7:30 pm.

View the exhibit through April by appointment: email rentals@heliconianclub.org to arrange a time.

The show runs from April 4 to May 1, 2024. Admission is free.
