Review in Art Critical


May 14, 2006 to August 15, 2006

Lyman Allyn Museum, New London, CT

"This exciting new exhibition, curated by Steven Holmes and culled from the renowned Cartin collection in Hartford, Connecticut, introduces contemporary approaches to portraiture ranging from traditional oil on canvas portraits to enhanced and re-worked photographs to three-dimensional assemblages referencing childhood memories. Subject explores–visually, socially, politically, and psychologically- the nature of portraiture."
