100 Faces is set to be an eclectic exhibition of portraiture featuring 50 artists from around the UK, taking place at the brand new Carp Society Lodge in Lechlade from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 August 2011.
The inaugural exhibition aims to showcase portraiture at all levels, including amateurs and professionals, as well as displaying a diverse range of painting styles – from Impressionism to classical oils – in all its collective glory.
Organiser, portrait artist and tutor Mike Skidmore says: ‘Portraiture is once again in fashion as the BP Awards receive record attendance and shows such as Show me the Monet bring traditional painting back into focus.
‘Across the country there are many talented people painting portraits who have little opportunity to showcase their work as, on the whole, galleries shun portraits for reasons of commercial viability.’
Aiming to create a unique opportunity for portraiture to be celebrated, art appreciators across Gloucestershire won’t want to miss this special three-day exhibition in the Cotswolds.
