The Arlington Center for the Arts is pleased to present its Fall exhibition REAL! This exhibit celebrates the beauty, technical precision, and advancement of the realism art canon through a variety of creative perspectives. Co-curators and artists, Gwen Chasan and Dan Cianfarini incorporated works selected by juror Phil Young to create an intricate tapestry of local artists’ subjects.
The artwork in REAL! ranges from exuberant photorealism to quiet studies produced with subtle lines and muted colors. The variety in this exhibition bears witness not only to the continuing appeal of artistic realism, but also acknowledges the difficulty of defining "representational art." While highly representational art has fallen in and out of popularity, it has enjoyed a continuous following of those who find pleasure, value, and meaning in seeing "what is" through the eyes of another artist.
Arlington Center for the Arts invites the public to join us in the celebration of our greater community members’ masterful interpretations of the world around them.
