Often our personal struggles and failures color our self-image in a harsher light than which our loved ones perceive us. Self-Evident is a joint exhibition featuring oil painters (and close friends) Nicole Woodruff and Hilary Swingle as they showcase their identities through a series of self-portraits and juxtapose each body of work with a final portrait painted by the other.
