San Francisco artist Frank Born’s exhibit, Portraits, will have an opening reception on November 6 at Pacific Union College’s Rasmussen Art Gallery, from 7 to 9 p.m. The show, running through December 5, will consist of 24 portraits in oil on canvas and watercolor on paper.

“ I have always felt that by looking at a face and painting what I saw,” says Born, “I could capture a portion of the interior life we each possess.” In recent years Born’s paintings have been exhibited in Japan, Chicago, and San Francisco, and he has been included in group exhibitions in North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, Iowa, California, and Japan.
