Program Description

Event Details

Meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments.

After years of drawing and painting "unpopulated" cityscapes (alleys and streets without people), Tim Leeming began a project to rediscover the faces of people he knew best, faces of friends. Using reference photos, Leeming studied them up close and drew them large and mostly life-sized. About Face re-examines what was temporarily withheld—when we lost the face.
