From Kim Kardashian to Taylor Swift to Tom Hanks to Lady Gaga, everybody loves a good "selfie." The recent surge of "selfies" has helped renew the "artist" self-portrait. How does the social media phenomenon affect an artist's view of a typical self-portrait? Is it something an artist thinks about when deciding the format and style of a portraiture? Does it affect an artist's perspective at all? Guild Hall's new exhibition will examine these nuances and more.
The exhibit will debut during a panel discussion with many of the artists on Saturday, June 20th from 3 to 4 p.m., followed by a public opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. A Members Only reception will take place in the Minikes Garden from 5:30 to 7 p.m. "Selfies & Portraits of the East End" will be on view through Sunday, July 26th.
Admission to the exhibit is free.
The Museum at Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-324-0806 or visit http://www.guildhall.org/.
