    Who will create your portrait? Choose from the CSOPA Portrait Subject Artists who have agreed to create original head and shoulders portraits specifically for this event. 
      
    This is your opportunity to personally experience the ancient tradition of portraiture. You or your proxy select your artist during the opening reception from the special display of samples (above), and arrange to meet for one portrait sitting and/or photo studies during the month of October.     

    Preregistration ensures you or your proxy has priority in choosing a Portrait Subject Artist at the reception. ALL AGES WELCOME. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. 

    *Registration is free. There is no obligation for models to purchase, however you can acquire your portrait at the special event prices beginning at $500 for a single sitting head & shoulders, or negotiate with the artist for more complex work. A portion of proceeds benefit Arts Escape and CSOPA. Unsold portraits remain the property of the artists.

    **Plan to arrive at 1:30 before the general public enters at 2 pm. Your guests are welcome for early admission with you. If you want us to choose an artist for you, kindly specify on the registration form.

    Some of the Single Sitting Portraits will be unveiled during the Closing Ceremony on October 28. If your portrait is completed by then, you are welcome to invite family and friends to this exciting event.
