How do artists look? How does an artist perceive and portray individuals in portraiture? And what if those individuals – their subjects – are fellow artists themselves? The exhibition Face to Face is a unique exploration of artists painting other artists. The exhibition will begin with nineteenth and early twentieth century artists, such as William Sidney Mount, Shepard Alonzo Mount, William Merritt Chase, Irving Wiles, and Fairfield Porter, but will, in all, feature approximately 60 works by more than 30 contemporary artists (many working at least part of the year on Long Island) who have taken turns sitting for studio portraits of one another. Regular admission is $10 per person, $7 for seniors and $5 for students ages six to 17. Children under six and museum members are free.
