Alliance Gallery kicks off the 2016 gallery season with a group exhibition of artworks titled “About Face.” The exhibit opens on Saturday, February 6, with a reception from 2 – 4 p.m., and will be on view through March 26.
The title ’About Face’ is an exhibition about faces and their complicated expressions. “The face is the mask we present to the world. This focus on the face can draw the viewer into the subjects inner world where each expression reveals a whole array of possibilities about their personalities and emotions.” says gallery director Rocky Pinciotti who is curating the exhibition from artists who submitted work to the Alliance gallery program. “A theme typically surfaces as I look through the submissions and this year there were a number of unique works involving portraits. There are images of happiness, sadness, fear, pensiveness, mystery and intensity all through the artists focus with the personality of the face. Each artist has chosen to portray their subjects charisma, temperament, individuality and psyche in such a way that the gallery goer is pulled into the subjects world all through the vehicle of the face.
The exhibition includes an assortment of media including painting, photography, collage and woodcut prints. Artists in the exhibit include John Rocklin, Miguel Tio, Lisa LoCurto, Claire Lambe,Richard Seehausen, Scott A. Woolsey, Mark Ciocca, Akira Ohiso and Charles Maraia.
