The face that launched a thousand ships. The face on the barroom floor. Face the Nation. And perhaps, a face that only a mother could love. Twelve artists from the region including A&D emeritus faculty Ted Ramsay, and A&D alums Marcia Polenberg (MFA ‘88), and John Copley (BFA ‘69) interpret the theme faces in a range of media.
The exhibition was organized by A&D alumna Joy Naylor (MA ‘88) and Diane Bennett, art consultants of Distinct Designs, Inc. “It’s intriguing to see the way these artists have turned their uncommonly creative eyes to re-imagine some things we think we know all too well—noses, chins, lips, eyes and ears,” said Naylor. “Most all faces are about emotion, outer reflections of what is going on inside, “ Bennett said.
Distinct Designs, Inc. specializes in placing art in business and public environments with services that include commissioned works, permanent installations and rotating art exhibits with a special focus on promoting and exhibiting the works of artists from the region.
