NEW YORK CITY, 6/9/16 - Rehs Contemporary is proud to work side by side with the Art Renewal Center as we present ARC Select; a group exhibition featuring the works of 6 hand-picked artists from ARC's annual Salon. Our inaugural ARC Select show features a diverse roster of contemporary realist artists who demonstrate superior technical skills, utilizing techniques reminiscent of 19th Century masters while remaining relevant to contemporary aesthetics. While each artist has their own style, theme and subject, the works showcase their immense talent and the dedication each has to their craft. The featured artists include the world renowned Joseph McGurl, known for his masterful plein-air landscapes which exemplify the use of light, while incorporating tireless attention to detail. Kari Tirrell, a self-taught artist known for her quirky still lives and mesmerizing toy jumbles. Richard Hall, a brilliant visual story-teller whose work incorporates twists of humor and whimsy. The Haitian artist Philippe Attie's meticulously crafted figure paintings juxtaposed against a playful abstraction. Walter Rane's investigations of the human form and the relationship with their environment and atmosphere; evoking ephemeral moments of spiritual interactions captured on canvas. Along with Duffy Sheridan, an artist whose tireless exploration has empowered him to reveal and convey the true subtleties of human expression. The ARC Select Opening Event is scheduled for October 22nd and all of the works will remain on display through November 19th at Rehs Contemporary Galleries located at 5 East 57th Street, New York, NY 10022. We welcome artists, collectors and enthusiasts alike to join us as we celebrate today's finest realist artists.
