About

Artizan Gallery welcomes a collection of local and national artists to exhibit in this open portrait exhibition, a showcase of artistic representations of identity. As all of our artists will demonstrate, portraits are not just about capturing a face, but the emotion, identity, personality and soul of a person. One of our speakers for this exhibitions art talk, Becky Nuttall, perhaps says it best:

“Portraits are not just faces, sitters and poses. Portraits are objects, settings and themes. In my work I make god in my image, steal the identity of saints, heroes and artists; stand behind them, beside them and in front of them; here I am, wearing their clothes. Using this contraband, I create ‘portraits’ that are a coalescence of allegory and symbols; referencing the nature and implications of theology, religious violence, piety, art, art history, feminism and popular culture - defining and considering how I discovered these in adolescence and how I began to set my gaze upon my identity”

Opening Times: Monday – Saturday 10.30 – 16.30

We have a number of exciting events during this exhibition, including portrait classes, art talks, sittings and poetry!
