About Face Value

The face is technically the front part of a head but it is also the facade we present to the public. Faces are the repository of endless expression and emotion. They are our way into ourselves and out into the world. There are billions of faces in the world and they are endlessly fascinating.

“About Face Value,” an art exhibition curated by Ellen Martin, is an exploration of the human face by eighteen artists working in various media: painting, wall sculptures, analog and digital photography, Adobe Illustrator graphics, and graphite. Most are representational, but some are very abstracted.

This will be an interesting, sometimes provocative, and always thoughtful exhibit.
