Join us at Del Ray Artisans from January 4-27, 2019 for the Faces art exhibit. Portraits show the life a person has lived, the joy a person emanates, the wisdom gained through years of living, and focuses on the soul of the person. This exhibit celebrates the fresh face of a two-year old toddler or the lived-in face of an octogenarian and all those living in-between. Faces and bodies are as the artist portrays them, whether realistic, impressionistic, surreal, or abstract.

Meet the curators and some of the artists at the opening reception on Friday, January 4 from 7-9pm at Del Ray Artisans. You may also enjoy the exhibit during these special workshops in January:
