“In another place, another town
You were just a face in the crowd”

– Tom Petty

Face in the Crowd strives to conjure the simple pleasure of meandering through throngs of people. The exhibition brings together artists working in portraiture in all forms to create a dense crowd in the gallery. The passing feelings of familiarity, novelty, and chance alight upon the audience as their eyes travel through the unique and unified collective of faces.
