Northern Superlative Order of Wandering Portraitists April Show
Barbershop Art Gallery Presents: THE NORTHERN SUPERLATIVE ORDER OF WANDERING PORTRAITISTS
A group exhibition featuring portraits from three different perspectives:
Opening – Wednesday, April 8th, 2009 6-9:30 p m Barbershop Gallery 1718 Queen St West.
THE SUPERLATIVE ORDER consists of internationally shown artists, Adam Hilborn, Elizabeth Dyer, and Courtney Wotherspoon. Each artist’s individual approach to portraiture reflects a contemporary alternative to the traditional form. THE SUPERLATIVE ORDER examines the human condition by returning to conventional methods of drawing and painting, and in doing so, transcends the historically established aesthetic value of portraiture. The final product reflects the actions, emotions and environment that surround the subjects. Using fragments of contemporary life, THE SUPERLATIVE ORDER explores the narrative component creating a balance between composition and portrayal.
