Opening Reception: Self & Others

Self and Others

You can probably guess what an exhibition titled “Self & Others” is: A bunch of portrait paintings. That doesn’t make it any less spectacular mind you, because Frank Gaard, Pamela Gaard, Stu Mead, and Nancy Robinson (the artists being showcased) are some of the best portrait painters around. The work includes self-portraits, dual portraits, portraits of one another, portraits of self as the other, and portraits of others as self—if this sounds a little confusing, don’t worry, it should make a lot more sense when you see the art in person. Head to Instinct Art Gallery tomorrow for the opening receptionSaturday, 6 p.m. Free. —EDJ
