About the Portraits and the Artist

Portraits of Immigrants: Unknown Faces, Untold Stories is an exhibition of oil portraits and stories of immigrants — men and women of all ages, from a variety of countries, religions, and cultures, showing why each came here, what sacrifices or challenges it took to make the journey and settle in, and what each has accomplished since.
Sparked by the maligning of immigrants she heard during the 2016 election, artist/journalist Betsy Ashton decided to try to find out who today’s immigrants really are. These are the people she found.
Portraits of Immigrants: Unknown Faces, Untold Stories is an exhibition about love rather than hate. It explores the humanity, the hopes and dreams, struggles and fears, and some very impressive achievements, of men and women from different countries and cultures, who came to America for a variety of reasons and now make their home here.
It is the result of the artist’s 2-year journey to find out who today’s immigrants and refugees really are
