People in the Belger Collection
June 5 - October 3, 2015
(Read Press Release)
For nearly 30,000 years artists have been portraying their fellow citizens in two and three dimensions. The invention of mirrors didn't stop this practice, nor did the invention of photography and motion pictures. Some people like portraying other people, and some people like being portrayed. Some artists do self-portraits. Then there are the third party observers to all this, the whole reason for galleries like the Belger Arts Center. There are two common threads in this exhibition – artwork from the Belger Collection; and, depictions of people by people for people.
