Portals are openings to new places, new experiences, and new sensations. Artists were asked to show what the word “portal” meant to them – either literally or metaphorically. Out of 358 entries, juror Andrew Brandmeyer, Professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design, selected 53 works by 42 artists for this year’s Portals Exhibition. These wonderful pieces will be on display from June 15 – July 31, 2022, in MFA’s online Curve Gallery.
