Don's Blog: Art Show 5-3

Jan and I went to the opening of a show: Phyllis Maclaren : Profiles in Courage. Phyllis and Jan are in a small group of women artists. The project was to produce portraits of people who had shown courage despite being punished for their political or religious views. The portraits were all somber, including the artist's self portrait,  reflecting the the seriousness of the issues in their 
lives.

There are several examples from the show below.









The show was very enjoyable and thought provoking.
