From the human form to a clutter of objects, Realism brings the commonplace to the spotlight. Through careful curation, attendees will be able to view works that might have never appeared on the same wall together. While many themes have been repeated for generations, each artists brings new life and perspective to their subject.
The show will feature work by Andrew Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, William McGregor Paxton, William Keith, George Inness, Eric Fishcl, Robert Cottingham, Eric Forstmann, Paul Ching Bor, Chizuru Mori Kaplan, Norbert Waysberg, Robert Graham, and others.
