'About Face' at WWA Gallery

WWA Gallery is starting off the year with a stellar group show which opens this Friday!
From their press release:
" Let's face it people: we are our own favorite subjects. That is why portraiture has long been so beloved and why examples of it can be found throughout history and in nearly every culture on the planet. This January, WWA gallery explores portrait's current state by featuring 35+ hot contemporary artists, all known to work in the medium, in the aptly named show, About Face.

 A portrait speaks not only of the person in it, but of the society surrounding them. A great deal can be learned about a culture's values, styles, attitudes, and perspectives simply by looking at the types of portraits its artists produce. About Face isn't just a survey of contemporary portraiture, it's a mirror of contemporary life. "

My piece for the show is entitled "Smoke Rings", and its 8" x 10" acrylic on board.
