Honora Jacob: Contemporary Histories

February 6 - 27, 2016
Opening Reception on Saturday, February 6 from 6 to 8pm

Preview Happy Hour + Artist Talk Thursday, February 4th at 6pm

In this show, Jacob’s technique and patterning brings a contemporary context and perspective to the genre of historical portraiture. The works depict women like Ana de Mendoza and Inez Milllholland, who are both legendary figures that defied the social norms of their times. These historically inspired portraits are created with a contemporary mindset, giving them a new respect and sense of purpose.
