Mary Jackson, 2002, by Mary Whyte (American, b. 1953); watercolor on paper; 21 x 28 1/2 inches; Gift of Cathy and Ben Marino

A portrait is both a document and a subjective record of the relationship between the artist and the sitter. A likeness may evoke a heightened intimacy between close friends, or pay homage to muses and mentors. Artists Mary Whyte and Mary Jackson will talk with Gibbes Executive Director Angela Mack about their work, their relationship, and the role of artist and sitter.

In partnership with Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
