The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is proud to present True Likeness, an exhibition of nearly 70 portraits, which will run November 4 – December 22, 2021, and January 4 – 18, 2022. The public is invited to a reception Thursday, November 11, 2021, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the gallery. Visitors must wear face coverings in Garland Hall.

The portraits in True Likeness represent the complexity of selfhood and are a celebration of human experience, both at the individual level and as an expression of cultural identities. The exhibition is curated by Tom Stanley and Lia Newman. “The artists in True Likeness draw attention to manufactured and real notions that different communities hold about one another,” Stanley said. “They remind us that the human image is a powerful indicator of reality, wishful thinking, memory, and perception.”
