Reception for Dame Mailarta's Portrait Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador
February 12, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., Grenfell Campus Art Gallery, Corner Brook
Dale Roberts, otherwise known as Dame Mailarta, has an ongoing portrait gallery. His collection is full of photos he takes of people or that they submit themselves. The photos are autographed and included in his portrait gallery and the participants receive a piece of mail art from the artist in return. As part of his overall exhibition which opens in January, we will be putting out a call at the beginning of the New Year inviting people to submit portraits.
In addition, Eastern Edge Gallery will set up a photo booth so gallery visitors can submit portraits.
