Joseph D.R. OLeary: Of Beards and Men
July 3- August 22, 2015
Reception: August 7, 2015 from 6-9 pm
Of Beards and Men is a remarkable, whimsical, and insightful collection of portraits that serve to capture many facets of masculinity. Using bold full-bodied portraits of men with varying degrees of facial hair, Joseph D.R. OLeary explores the current cultural fascination with defining masculinity and the struggles men face to create their own persona’s and identities. OLeary’s portraits are both inspired and defined by each man’s personality, giving them an innate sense of uniqueness and individuality within each image. Stepping into this gallery surrounds the viewer with beautiful portraits and food for thought as a partial visual record of masculinity in contemporary society.
