ArtsWorcester invites members to register work for About Face, a non-juried, open-member exhibition exploring the many forms of portraiture. We seek approaches to likeness, expression, mood, or personality, through representations of individuals, pairs, or groups. Works can be two- or three- dimensional, still or moving images, and formal or informal. All media are accepted.

Five hundred dollars in prizes will be awarded by Lauren Szumita, Curatorial Assistant of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Worcester Art Museum. Prize winners will be announced at the opening reception.

For a quick drop-off, please register work online using this Submittable form by Thursday, June 6.
