National Portrait Gallery Announces Winners of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition and Opening of ‘The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today’
The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has announced artist Alison Elizabeth Taylor as the first-prize winner of the sixth national Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. Her prize-winning artwork “Anthony Cuts under the Williamsburg Bridge, Morning” (2020) depicts Brooklyn, N.Y.-based hair groomer Anthony Payne in a process that Taylor developed and named “marquetry hybrid.” Using vivid paints, inkjet prints, and the natural grains of over 100 veneers, Taylor created the multilayered portrait after encountering Payne, who was offering donation-based haircuts to support Black Lives Matter despite his own workplace having been shuttered by the pandemic.
The first prize portrait will be on view as part of “The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today.” The exhibition will be on view at the Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., April 30 through Feb. 26, 2023, and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog.
