Calling all visual artists creating self-portraits! Lanesboro Arts is inviting artists to submit an application for inclusion in the upcoming “Spitting Image” exhibition, a juried self-portrait group show which will run from February 9 to April 6, 2019.

All styles of self-portraiture, including realism, abstraction, representational, traditional, non-representational, modern and conceptual will be accepted.

Artists should also submit their mailing address, phone number, website and artist statement. Entries are also accepted via the postal service.
