Portrait Making – How and Why

Exhibition Dates – August 28-30 from 12-5pm

With an Opening Reception Thursday, 27 August at 6pm

M16 Artspace, Workspace A, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith ACT

 

Drawing and painting from live models attracts this group of portrait artists to the Canberra Art Workshop studio at the M16 Artspace each week. Members use water and oil based paints, pastels, pencil and charcoal or whatever medium takes their fancy. Some works on display ended when the model session concluded while others were studio adjusted. Many members take on a variety of portrait projects beyond the workgroup and some welcome commissions.

This group of artists are drawn to portraiture for a variety of reasons, from the challenge of capturing a likeness to the experience of being in collaboration with a model to generate art that interprets a mood or tells a human story. While the challenge of the art process is motivating, they also extoll the therapeutic benefits of focusing on their work and of learning from each other as they work together.

The informal exhibit also touches on different approaches used to create some of the portraits on display.
