The “face” is a composite of sense organs: eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. If we include the skin, the face enables not only sight and hearing but all five senses. By means of faces we identify other people and communicate with them, trying to know what is in their heart. By means of faces we live and function in society.
This exhibition looks at this important but elusive communicator, the face. Artworks by ten artists are featured taking three approaches—“Me and You,” “Faces and Relationships,” and “Play with Faces.” We invite you to meet faces of all kinds through artworks of many genres and periods.
