A popular thing among people with camera-enabled cell phones over the past few years has been their ability to create #selfies. This is a relatively new term to define an instant self portrait. The act of self portraiture isn’t new. Some are elaborate and have props, some are abstract, some are in grand settings, while others might be created using just a simple back drop.

Is there a difference between self portraits and #selfies? In our upcoming exhibition, on display from January 16-March 8th, we have chosen 11 artists who have spent time focusing the camera on themselves. These artists include Stephen Sheffield, Alicia Savage, Alexa Torre, Bill Franson, Agnieszka Sosnowska, Laura Knapp, Greg Norstrom, Cori DiPietro, Jenna Stebbins, Orianna Reardon, and Meredith Abenaim.

We hope that you join us at the Opening Reception with the artists on Friday, January 16th from 5:30-7:30pm.
