"To Be Real" - Portraits by Shona Curtis at the Charter Oak Cultural Center

"To Be Real" is a solo exhibition of portraits by photographer Shona Curtis taking place at the Charter Oak Cultural Center, 21 Charter Oak Ave., Hartford, CT from January 27 through March 10, 2017.

There is an opening reception on Friday, January 27 from 6 pm - 8 pm.

From the press release: "Through intimate portraits, photographer Shona Curtis illustrates how portraiture is not about the subject or the photographer, but the alchemy of the relationship between the two.  'To Be Real', an exhibit of film and digital photography, exposes what lies behind our masks when we feel safe enough to reveal it—a shared humanity—and demonstrates the fragility, beauty and perils of being human."

Curtis will be exhibiting at The Gallery at Still River Editions in April and May.
