Drop in to the Ou Gallery from 11-4pm during the week of July 3rd – 8th to visit with artist Janelle Hardy as she completes her 100 portrait project series.
About the project:
Janelle was “searching for a way to get more consistent with my art series” and was inspired by StylelikeU’s instagram & website so she comitted to committed to doing 100 portraits sourced from their What’s Underneath interview series.
“The rules I made for myself were this: each subject’s portrait had to be sourced from one of the images StyleLikeU shared from the interview on their instagram feed, I had to watch the interview the same day I did the painting, and I had to share it on Instagram as part of
the #the100dayproject. I got 78 portraits finished before life got busy and I ran out of time.”
Through this process, Janelle “circumvented the insidious idea that you have to be inspired to make art. You only need an idea, and a willingness to sit down and do it no matter what, every day, and magic happens, even when it feels like it can’t.”
