Selfies, those photos you snap of yourself with your smart phone, are undeniably hot now. Who can forget the one Ellen Degeneres took with a few friends at the Oscars? And how about the David Ortiz selfie with none other than President Obama? Selfie, in fact, was the word of the year in 2013!
And now the Ossining Arts Council is on the cusp of the trend with Selfie, a show of self-portraits, which will be on exhibit at the Steamer Firehouse Gallery, 117 Main Street, from May 10th through June 30th. And the best part is your own self-portrait can be in the show!
Of course the Selfie is nothing new. Self-portraits have been with us for centuries. Just think of Rembrandt and Van Gogh, to name a few. And you can do the same; in any medium you wish (including your smart phone) and submit it to the OAC ready for hanging. Remember, all media are welcome but the face must be your own.
