Revealing Character: 400 Years of Portraits at the Riverside Art Museum
The second in a three-fold series of exhibits mined from RAM’s Permanent Collection, Revealing Character celebrates nearly four centuries of portraiture, with artwork spanning from 1617 to 2008. New York-based Guest Curator Margaret Mathews-Berenson has selected 47 notable works of portraiture by such pivotal artists as: Eugène Carrière, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti, and Takashi Murakami. Revealing Character also presents celebrated local artists, including: Joanna Mersereau, O. Walter Donnenfeld, and Leo Limon, of East Los Angeles’ Self-Help Graphics. Striking, informative and diverse, Revealing Character proves to be a pointedly distinctive museum experience.
The Revealing Character Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, October 8 and features curatorial talks throughout the evening. RAM members will be admitted to a Preview Reception and private curatorial talk from 7-8 p.m. free of charge. The general public reception will be held from 8-10 p.m. with $5 admission for non-members. Talks by Curator Margaret Mathews-Berenson will begin at 7:15 for members and 8:30 for non-members.
