NEWPORT — The MAC Center for the Arts is getting ready for their final exhibit for 2019, titled “FACES.”

The opening reception is Friday, December 13, from 5-7 p.m. in the Downstairs Connection.

This is a free event and open to the public.

As Kurt Vonnegut once said, “We are what we pretend to be. So, we must be careful what we pretend to be.”

Faces can be represented in various ways.Faces are everywhere.

Whichever way we see and are seen, recognized or not, the profile or headshot evokes emotions well beyond what emojis could possibly capture.

This subject is open to multiple interpretations and they will all be on display by a plethora of MAC artists as well as art on loan in mixed media, clay, bronze, oil, 2D, 3D, fiber and jewelry.

All are on display until January 4, 2020.

This exhibit is curated by Victoria Mathiesen, Andrea Strobach and Arlene Goldberg.

Come enjoy the juxtaposition of emotions captured, aesthetics created, and ethereal atmospheres FACES can conjure in MAC’s 2019 FINALE exhibit, located at 158 Main Street, in Newport.
