Truth and Vision: 21st Century Realism

Published January 6, 2017

Inspired by Robert C. Jackson’s 2014 publication, Behind the Easel: The Unique Voices of 20 Contemporary Representational Painters, this exhibition surveys the state of realistic painting at the start of the 21st century. Indicative of this moment are two trends in representational painting–the depiction of the natural world and the creation of fantastic imaginings. Featuring artists from throughout the United States and Canada, Truth & Vision: 21st Century Realism reveals the contemporary developments in a mode of painting historically tied to the greater Brandywine Valley.
The exhibition is taking place at the Delaware Art Museum, located on 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, Delaware 19806 from October 4, 2016 - January 22, 2017.
