The Evelyn Peeler Peacock Gallery at The ARTS Council announces a call for artists for The Self-Portrait Show.

The selfie has taken on a ubiquitous and larger than life presence in today’s digital landscape, however, the self-portrait has long been a part of an artist’s introspective desire to explore and share themselves fully with the world. The Self-Portrait Show is continuation of this tradition.

The Self-Portrait Show is aligned with The Rockwell Museum’s fall 2022 spotlight exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray. Muray obsessively photographed Kahlo who is famous for using the self-portrait to explore aspects of her experience and identity. In the spirit of these two artists, we call on artists to turn their brushes and lenses inward. Artists are encouraged to explore a variety of responses across any medium.
