Face-to-Face: Human Observation, Expression and Interaction is Durham Art Guild's first themed group show of 2014. In a digital and social media era it is easy to stay in touch but also easy to lose sight of the importance of what we learn when looking in someone’s eyes and interacting face-to-face. What have you seen and observed in your portrait work or have you ever captured a candid moment that opened a window into someone else’s world?
