Self comes to mind – Opening 7th September

Self comes to mind – the self portrait in the digital age

Exhibition opening Friday 7th September 6.00pm – 9.00pm.
Electro Studios Project Space, Seaside Road, St Leonards on Sea TN38 0AL. United Kingdom

‘Self comes to mind is not about looking in the mirror, nor is it restricted to traditional fine
art practice. Implicit in the invitation to each of the participating 40 artists, is a sense of
intuition and trust that the tradition of self-portraiture, in whatever form, continues to
interest artists, even if it is not the main preoccupation of their practice.’

Gallery open to the public Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th, then Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September 12.00am – 5.00pm
Exhibition closes Sunday 16th at 5.00pm
