Faces of Woodside Art Show
Faces of Woodside was the first art show held in the Quad by students and for students. Curated by senior Christian Masulit and Lindsay Harrison and hosted by the Woodside Art Club, the show took place on November 22 for one lunch session.
The portraits are representations of others or oneself in an attempt to capture the inner soul of the person portrayed rather than merely representing the surface features of their face.
The artists worked primarily in pastel, with some incorporation of colored pencils, to explore how color can convey mood and character, and how an abstract approach to color can enrich figurative drawings.
The artists also played with a strictly limited color palette, with range of only one or two colors, but giving great attention to how they built up their medium to lend the drawings a more painterly quality.
