ART ON THE SQUARE GALLERY and the DECATUR COUNTY ARTS CONNECTION is pleased to host PORTRAITS: Friends, Family & Favorites. An exciting exhibition through Art and Photographic works.

The Exhibit is a Fine Arts Exhibit of works created with Oil, Watercolor, Carvings and Photography. The exhibition is NOW SHOWING until the end of July.

The public is invited to a Second Friday Wine and Cheese Reception, June 9th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. Where they can enjoy the Gallerys free hospitality and view the exhibition.

Normally, a portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture or other artistic depiction of a human person, in which the face and its expression, pose or mood is prevalent to engage the viewer. In this special exhibit, we have included four legged and winged subjects in the form of subjects of distinctive attitude.

Portraits have existed for over 5000 years beginning with the Egyptian pharaohs in statuary and graphic wall paintings. Coming forward through Greco-Roman times and the First Century, then continuing into Renaissance, Modern Art and present day art, portraits now include photography. Some works use literal techniques and some abstract approaches. Many present day representations include family portraits.

Earlier the individuals portrayed were members of the ruling elite, priests, warriors and even distinguished artisans. Usually only men were depicted, but one of the best-known portraits in the Western world is Leonardo da Vincis painting of a woman titled Mona Lisa.

Guests at the Second Friday reception on June 9th will be able to view the shows exhibited pieces and meet some of the artists who will be present. The event is free and soft drinks and hors doeuvres will also be served. The public is welcome: Families, Children, Friends and Colleagues.
