“DeFACEment: Through Artistic Eyes”

Maritime Garage Gallery, April 30 - July 10, 2020


An expressive personality and portraiture art show depicting unique perspectives through an artists’ eyes. Artists are asked to search beyond the ordinary to develop compelling visuals that evoke thought, passion, as well as hardship, conflict, and spiritual freedom. Are portraits that simple? Or do they transition beyond all things around us that include both animate to inanimate forms? DeFACEment: Through Artistic Eyes asks artists to take us through that journey.
