APPEARANCES
Group exhibition
Collaboration with Lauren E. Peters

April 3 - 26, 2020

Opening Reception:

Friday, April 3 | 5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

"Painting self-portraits can be an isolating experience. However, I usually have an imagined audience there with me, of which I try to make myself a part. I've always encouraged the viewer to attempt to see themselves and each other differently, but in the moment it's hard to look past all the images of a single person using a singular style of painting. For this exhibition, I've asked a selection of artists I respect and admire to create their interpretation of my 2016 piece "self-portrait (orange)," using the painting itself for inspiration and/or the source photo from which I originally worked. These efforts will transform the image in a way I cannot do on my own, different hands using their own unique styles to show how they see that person. We critically judge each other on appearances, and I organized this group to break this one singular idea into layers reflective of the many ways we could choose to see ourselves and each other."

Lauren E. Peters became a studio artist at The Delaware Contemporary in 2015, hoping to return to oil painting after an extended hiatus and began painting self-portraits. In 2018 Peters was awarded the Emerging Artist fellowship from the Delaware Division of the Arts. She holds a BA in Visual Arts and has kept up with her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.
