Narrative Self-Portraiture

National Juried virtual Exhibition

May 22 - August 11, 2020

The South Haven Center for the Arts invited artists from across the nation to create narrative self-portraits. Artists were asked to take inspiration from the exhibition Frida Kahlo’s Garden—a National Endowment for the Humanities traveling exhibit that presents an intimate look at how nature and culture nourished Kahlo's creativity and informed the narrative in her art.
 
"I paint self-portraits because I am the person I know best. I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to and I paint whatever passes through my head without any consideration."  ~Frida Kahlo

Juror, Alan Larkin

Juror Alan Larkin of South Bend, IN, taught printmaking and drawing at Indiana University South Bend for nearly forty years. An artist himself, Larkin works in drawing, painting and printmaking, incorporating a taste for realism that guides his narrative work.
