curated by Robin Ross and Giustina Surbone
Tabla Rasa Gallery is delighted to host The Portrait: Painted and Personal curated by Robin Ross, and Giustina Surbone. This exhibition presents the viewer an opportunity to see beyond traditional portrait painting. Included is a portrait of the gay icon, Quentin Crisp, English writer, raconteur and theatrical performer. In this larger-than-life painting, Giustina Surbone, captures a quiet moment as this singular figure fills the canvas with a larger-than-life personality, even as he sleeps.
The other exhibiting artists include Nana Deleplanque, Robin Gaynes-Bachman, Audrey Anastasi, and Robin Ross.
The public is invited to the opening reception from 6:00 until 8:00 pm on Wednesday, March 4, 2009. The exhibition continues until April 3, 2009.
