Poetry of Content: Five Contemporary Representational Artists

Exhibition Website

Nov 5 2016 - Feb 19 2017

An examination of contemporary representational drawing, painting, and printmaking, this exhibition features the work of artists connected by a shared fascination with representing their worlds: Bill Murphy, Gillian Pederson-Krag, Joel Sheesley, Tim Lowly, and Robert Birmelin

Featuring more than 45 pieces of original artwork, a variety of imagery is on view, showing realistic visual space, figures, and natural surroundings by artists who explore places visited, scenes imagined, landscapes and interior scenes, and modelled figures.

"These five artists continue to hone to perfection a body of work that I feel will last beyond our time," he says, adding, "These mature creators continue, regardless of the neglect of museums and critics, to persevere."
