> DESCRIPTION

St. Sebastian is a figure well-established in the visual canon since the early Renaissance as the bound, sensuously semi-nude figure impaled with Roman arrows. This provacative exhibition, anchored by Titian's portrait from c. 1530, explores the evolving interpretation of St. Sebastian from the the 16th century to the present. In direct view of Titian's striking portrait are contemporary depictions of St. Sebastian by Doug Argue, Carlos Betancourt, Fred Holland Day, Yves de Brabander, Red Grooms, Marcia Grostein, Elisa Jensen, Cynthia Karalla, Ross Bennett Lewis, Cathy McClure, Michael Murphy, Eric Rhein, David Vance, Ventiko, and Christopher Winter.
