This exhibition will focus on realist artists whose art has a story to tell, and whose many-layered works of art communicate, with depth and meaning, the story of our diverse society. Painting, sculpture, mixed media, fiber, printmaking, photography, and other forms of art are included.
Since the beginning of time, artists have used the visible world as a source for art making. The 20th Century broke away from the real world to investigate the inner workings of the conscious and the unconscious mind. All the “isms” in the art world—cubism, surrealism, constructivism, minimalism, and abstractionism, just to name a few—could NOT overpower REALISM. Realist art is still being made today and is more powerful than ever!
