Shaping the Present: Realist Art Then and Now
For years, people have been saying realist art is coming back. Judging from its growing visibility and the mushrooming of realist art schools nationwide, it’s more accurate to say it’s here. How are top contemporary realist artists inspired or informed by their historical counterparts? Is it wise to collect today’s realist artists when many museums and critics are reluctant to highlight them?
Opening October 20th- I am very pleased to participate in a drawing exhibit at the grand Marshal Lekae Gallery in Scottsdale Arizona. Look out for an advertisement in SouthWest Art Magazine. Arizona is new exhibition territory for me and I am thrilled to begin this relationship with such a fine gallery.
They also have two of my paintings on view. The gallery director Peter Strub is very knowledgeable and a delight to talk with.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting the gallery director and owner Virginia “Gina” Barnes of The Churchill Gallery. She has run this gallery in the same space for over 35 years! Quite an accomplishment. Gina has a keen aesthetic and I am very happy she has accepted my paintings into her gallery. The Churchill Gallery was founded in 1972, they showcase the work of exceptional artists, both established and emerging from across the Untied States. They exhibit a range of landscape, still life, and figurative paintings.
This is a very in depth blog titled, “Roberta on the Arts” operated by Dr. Roberta E. Zlokower. It follows events and “things to do” in and around NYC and Chicago. A great resource.
She recently visited the Spring Salon Exhibit, which I am participating in, at Eleanor Ettinger Gallery- here is a link to her review.
