​Las Laguna Gallery is seeking portraits.

The human face is an endlessly fascinating subject. A portrait is painting, drawing, photograph, or an artist representation of a person with a particular focus on the face.

 

For this call to art we are looking for paintings, drawings or photographs that capture personality, character, expression, spirit or mood. What story will you convey with your portrait? How will you engage the viewer with your subject? What colors, composition or lighting will you use to communicate a story? Will your portrait speak and engage the viewer? Will your viewer be drawn into your work?

Your portraits can use traditional or non-traditional styles and mediums but the main focus should be on the face. Your portrait can be a friend, family, a stranger or yourself.

All local, national and international artists, professional and amateur and multiple art mediums will be considered in this call for art. From photography to fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, ink, graphite, pastels, etc.


Note:   All artists who submit to this show will be accepted and have at least one of their submitted works posted on our website, promoted on Facebook.
