Featuring painting, drawing, and sculpture, American Realism: A Survey will explore the pluralistic nature of the realism movement. What constitutes realism? Over time the definition has blurred due to the vast diversity of styles within realist art. Realism has remained a constant in American painting, though appearing in various guises: traditional realism, photo realism, hyper realism, magic realism, painterly realism, neo-academic realism, and many more, all fall within its ever widening parameters.
The exhibition will highlight the works of notable contemporary luminaries such as Jamie Wyeth, Daniel Sprick, Harvey Dinnerstein, and Steven Assael, while paying homage to past exemplars such as John Koch and Andrew Wyeth. Through varying styles, each artist presents their interpretation of reality; all use a direct visual language to convey their individual truth.
