The North Carolina Museum of Art invites college students to submit original self-portraits for inclusion in a special juried exhibition Self, Observed to coincide with the Rembrandt in America exhibition October 30, 2011 through January 31, 2012. The exhibition celebrates the exploration of identity that occupied Rembrandt van Rijn throughout his life. Because of limited space, only a select number of works will be chosen for Self, Observed.


All entries are due by August 31, 2011.

For me, painting is not an activity limited to working with brushes, paint and canvas, but involves a variety of tools, devices and instruments.

Painting is inclusive of drawing, tracing, cutting, gluing, rubbing, collage, taping, measuring, correcting, re-drawing, filling-in gaps, covering up, overlapping, removing, spraying, scraping, sanding, outlining, delineating, mapping, unearthing, blotting, splattering, daubing, etc.
