The figure remains one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects to represent in both form and concept. We want to see your interpretations of the figure, human or otherwise! Whether drawn, painted, sculpted, or photographed, we invite works that delve into the psyche, reflect the self, or depict the body. This exhibit is open to all.
