Who are you? That’s the question that artists were asked to answer in the Santa Paula Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition entitled I Am Me: Artists’ Self-Portraits. The same question will be asked of museum visitors as they view the 39 self-portraits featured in the exhibit, and as they participate in interactive art-making activities that will accompany the professional works on display. I Am Me will open with a premiere party on Saturday, February 2, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Admission to the premiere is $10.00 for museum members and $15.00 for non-members.
I Am Me: Artists’ Self-Portraits will feature artworks by artists from across California including Nathan Asplund, Jenna Bao, Brandin Baron, Pamela Benham, Janet Black, L.T. Bunning, Laurie Cook, Taylor Crisp, Duane Dammeyer, Pamela Hill Enticknap, Pausha Foley, Russell Foltz-Smith, Theodore Gall, Jose Galvan, Stacey Geldin, Lynn Hanson, Gail Hercher, Eul Hurley, Tess Israelson, E.E. Jacks, Dottie Korn-Davis, Pamela Larsson-Toscher, Lisa Skyheart Marshall, Vivian Patton, Mariana Peirano, Gail Pidduck, Nathan Plaisted, Roxie Ray, John Robertson, Carolyn Schlam, Priscila Claure Soruco, Sandy Treadwell, Colin Trewhitt, Michael Wood, and Kay Zetlmaier.
