Get Faced with Diane Farris Gallery
August 7, 2008
I think someone at the programming staff at the Diane Farris Gallery is a fan of Clueless, Amy Heckerling’s 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. In case you don’t remember, romantic comedy ensues in Emma as a result of a portrait. In Clueless the portrait is replaced with a photograph. Unlike most of Heckerling’s wonder-piece this slight change in plot ends up falling flat, because portraiture is more than a simple capture of person.
This aspect of portraiture will be on display at the gallery’s upcoming show, Portrayal. Various gallery artists including Wil Murray along with guest artists Angela Grossmann and Nick Lepard will present different styles of portraiture.
“We have a variety of quite talented artists that range from emerging to seasoned artists that work in portraiture,” says Christopher Fadden. “So we wanted to explore the different realms from the young to the more established and it’s just a beautiful of artwork.”
