Be first to view Get Real: New America Painting and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, music, and mingling.
A selection of contemporary painters from across the country—Haley Hasler, Jason John, Andrea Kowch, Bryan LeBoeuf, Jenny Morgan, Kevin Muente, Frank Oriti, and Kevin Peterson—provides a snapshot of the current landscape of realist painting in the United States. Get Real’s heavily figurative focus explores themes that have persisted throughout the recent history of American realist painting such as narrative portraiture and social, psychological, and magical realism. The works in this exhibition trace an aesthetic lineage from Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth through artists such as Philip Pearlstein, Gregory Gillespie, and Sidney Goodman, past well-known and successful contemporary painters such as Bo Bartlett and Vincent Desiderio to this new generation of young painters.
