The McLean County Arts Center presents Contemporary Portraiture, an exhibition featuring work by Margaret LeJeune, Rick Lewis, and Jason Patterson in the Brandt Gallery, January 9 through February 14 2015. A reception will be on Friday, January 16 from 5 to 7 pm and an Art Talk given by the artists will be on Tuesday, February 3 at 6 pm. These events are free and open to the public.

Contemporary Portraiture features three artists informed perspectives on portraiture. With a nod to the history of portraiture, each artist moves their subjects who may be considered other into the light of hero. Margaret LeJeune, Rick Lewis, and Jason Patterson are each embarking into new, bold series of works that grapple with challenging our society’s preconceived perceptions about race, gender, class, and religion.

This exhibition was generously sponsored by COUNTRY Financial.
