The Gallery @ Barr Photographics announces the holiday installment of the Corner Gallery’s 2018 exhibition series, with a debut exhibit of photo realistic acrylic paintings by Brenda Mask. Mask is an emerging artist, hailing from Texas by way of Knoxville, Tennessee, whose bold and fresh exhibit is entitled “Be Who You Want To Be.”

In her biographical sketch, Mask reveals “I am the model for most of these works of art. Because, as my favorite artist, Frida Kahlo, once said, ‘I am the person I know best.’” Mask also says, “My bold and fresh Retro Chic images are mostly headless, which is the inspiration for the theme of the show, ‘Be Who You Want To Be.’ The paintings could be anyone. They could be you.”

“Be Who You Want To Be” is celebrated with a holiday gala reception and art talk by Mask, to which the public is, invited, Friday, Dec. 14 from 7-9 p.m., in The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, Abingdon, Virginia. “Be Who You Want To Be” is on display and for sale through Jan. 31. The Gallery @ Barr Photographics is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district.
