When: Fri., Oct. 18, 5-8 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 27 2019
Cayce Zavaglia's artworks appear to be hyper-realistic painted portraits when viewed from a distance; it's only when you move closer that you realize that they're embroidered. Zavaglia eventually noticed that the backside of each work contained a second portrait, one whose knotted and blurred features were just as beautiful and perhaps more psychologically interesting than the front. Recently she's returned to her roots as a painter by recreating these "hidden faces" in painted portraits. Unseen, a solo exhibition of Zavaglia's work in both paint and embroidery, goes on display at the William Shearburn Gallery (665 South Skinker Boulevard; www.shearburngallery.com) on Friday, October 18. The show opens with a free reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Unseen remains on display through November 27.
