PORTALES–The closing reception for the Me, Myself & I National Juried Self Portrait Show will be from 5-6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 29, in the Runnells Gallery in Golden Library on the Portales campus of Eastern New Mexico University.
It is free and open to the public.
The exhibit is focused on how people identify as individuals, including social, cultural, political, gender, age and sexual orientation. This show was open to any artist submitting a self-portrait.
The jurors included Greg Erf, ENMU professor of art; Greg Senn, ENMU professor of art; Mic Muhlbauer, ENMU professor of art; Brad Hamann, ENMU chair of the Department of Art; David Deal, ENMU assistant professor of art; and Diane Cole, instructor of ceramics.
According to Senn “This was a hellasciously fun show to select for. The work was good and the range of styles made it challenging to try to pick ‘bests’ as compared to other ‘bests.’ What stood out to me was the over-all quality of the submissions we received.”
