“Celebrating the Portrait as Timeless Art” is filled with works that transcend time and personal relationships, allowing the viewer to forge an instant, emotional connection. The painting becomes more than a portrait— it becomes an enduring piece of art. The contemporary portraiture in Haynes Galleries’ show is as expressive, thoughtful, and engaging as any landscape or still life. The show is a credit to the genre, showcasing a range of styles and a great depth of emotion. These are more than just pretty faces. More than an homage. Viewers will leave the gallery feeling like they have formed a new connection.
