October 2016, Victor Caulfield Collection

Studio Sapiti hosted the Victor Caulfield Collection in October 2016. Victor Caulfield has generously shared his time as a model over the past five years to students, emerging and established artists. The end result is a collection now numbering approximately 50 paintings by diverse artists of the same subject.
This collection represents an incredible undertaking and an important learning experience for artists as we examine different approaches to the same subject. At its best, a painted portrait is not necessarily photographic but captures something unique about the sitter in the eyes of the artist.
