Still Point Art Gallery Opens American Portraits: Diversity in Our Land

Still Point Art Gallery opens its unique exhibition: American Portraits: Diversity in Our Land. This exhibition celebrates diversity in America through the genre of portraiture. Artists were encouraged to think about diversity in America in its broadest sense. The result is what you see...portraits of elderly men and women, children at play, people from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, people exhibiting different lifestyles, different pastimes, different issues, different blessings. It's like a walk up Fifth Avenue, Chicago Avenue, Hollywood Boulevard, or Bourbon Street. Lots of individuals...no two are alike. 

Great achievements are not born from a single vision but from the combination of many distinctive viewpoints. Diversity challenges assumptions, opens minds, and unlocks our potential to solve any problems we may face.  --Unknown
