Two paintings by Froelick Gallery artist Kevin Kadar are currently included in the Tacoma Art Museum's exhibit Sitting for History: Exploring Self-Identity Through Portraiture.
"Until the mid-1800s, portraits were generally a privilege reserved for the upper class; symbols of their wealth and social status. Today, portraits are created by cartoonists at county fairs and social media users constantly upload selfies to their online profiles. Sitting for History: Exploring Self-Identity through Portraiture delves into this shift and examines how our use of portraiture has drastically changed over the years.
On view August 3, 2013 through January 12, 2014, the exhibition includes more than 60 works selected from the museum’s collection and explores ways that our public and private identities are created by ourselves and by others."Follow the link below for more information.Source Link: More information
