Mirror Face

@ Cleve Carney Art Gallery

425 Fawell Blvd, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

Opening Saturday, March 11th, from 1PM - 3PM

On view through Thursday, April 13th

Mirror Face showcases the work of Christa Donner, Sarah McEneaney, and Keiler Roberts. For all three of these artists the documentation of their everyday lives, both internal and external, serves as part of the inspiration for their work. In contrast to the highly crafted representations of self we have grown accustomed to seeing in contemporary society, the paintings, drawings, and comics in this exhibition present actual portraits rather then idealized ones.

Whether chronicling the mundane locations and conversations of their everyday, monitoring the cumulative cost of their daily consumption or documenting the exceptional moments of their lives these artists’ work highlight the ways in which the vulnerability of a true self portrait is individually empowering and provides valuable common connection.
