Last Fall hundreds of artists from over 70 countries submitted self-portraits to Artists Wanted?s competition: The Power of Self. The range and depth of work was phenomenal and Judges Steve Buscemi, Chris Weitz, Helen Hsu and Sascha Lewis were challenged to select the images and stories that were most powerful. Artists Wanted Presents Self : Expressed Friday, March 12, 7 to 10 p Open House Gallery 201 Mulberry St. in Manhattan Featuring the winner of The Power of Self Cheng-Chang Wu of Nan-Tou, Taiwan. Wu relates his story through his environment. His almost anti-self portraits capture a moment of relief in a chaotic inner dialogue about his self and his nation. Plus self-portraits from People's Choice Winners Rebekka Gušleifsdóttir from Hafnarfjöršur, Iceland and Hilary McHone from South Pasadena, CA and the top 100 artists from NYC and beyond.
