Self-Portraits not #Selfies

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 17th, 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, Corinne 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.

Here's a selection of some of the images that will be on display:

Our Emerging Artist | FEATURED this month is Acadia Mezzofanti, a recent graduate of Deerfield Academy. We met Acadia over the summer when she sent us a catalog of her work. Soon thereafter we reviewed her portfolio and thought that her whimsical self-portraits would fit in nicely with our next exhibition.

Come meet Acadia at the opening reception on Friday, January, 16th from 5:30-7:30pm.
