About Face - Call for Entry

Bedford Gallery is currently accepting art submissions for its Spring 2023 portraiture exhibition About Face! The deadline to apply is January 26, 2023.

The practice of creating portraits dates back nearly 12,000 years to the Neolithic era. What began as plastered human skulls has evolved into paintings, photographs, and sculpture that not only capture the likeness of an individual, but also provide clues about the cultural and societal context in which the person lived. About Face, a juried and invitational portraiture exhibition, continues this fascinating tradition using a contemporary lens to speculate how future generations might perceive the way we value beauty, power, and ultimately what we hold culturally significant.

Eligibility: Open to all artists, 18 years of age or older, working in all media and all sizes.

Jurors: Zoë Latzer, Associate Curator and Director of Public Programs, ICA San Jose

David Reyes, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Huntsville Museum of Art

Over $2,000 in cash and prizes for artist awards.

About Face will be on view at Bedford Gallery April 15 – June 25, 2023.
