Mark Adams and Beth Van Hoesen chose realism at a time when other artists were creating abstract works of art. Many of the lithographs and etchings in the exhibition are up-close looks at nature and everyday objects. Mark Adam’s large prints present single objects— a glass jar, cigar box or martini glass at a size much bigger than real life. Van Hoesen’s attention is more often focused on nature rather than manufactured or handmade objects. She did, at times, create larger than life-size lithographs of flowers—but her animals and flowers were more frequently actual size or smaller, with skillfully drawn and etched details of texture and pattern. Mark Adams was a frequent subject of Van Hoesen’s work, and the exhibition includes three portraits of Adams—all in his checkered suit.
