Wendy Seligman Lewis has been intrigued, over the course of her career, by the demands and revelations of self-portraiture. The artist who concentrates on self-portraits must observe the self intensely, both as object and subject. The Nesto exhibit, selected from among her other works, covers nearly 40 years of the artist’s self-portraits, revealing her strength, vulnerability, experience, reflection, intensity and repose. Ultimately, these portraits are about the process of aging.
An opening reception for the show is scheduled on Tuesday, September 20, from 5:30–7 p.m. in the lower level of the Art and Media Center. The exhibit is open weekdays, 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., until October 19.
The Nesto Gallery opened in 1972. The gallery brings in artists from the New England area whose work enriches and broadens the School’s collective perspective. Eight exhibitions take place a year, two of which are student exhibitions. Each year one exhibition, planned on a rotating basis, includes either graduates, members of the Milton community or a local artist.
