> DESCRIPTION

Featuring the work of four West Coast realist painters: Michael Beck, Christine Hanlon, Anthony Holdsworth and John Rampley, this exhibition highlights the individual approaches to rendering physical or metaphysical reality, creating illusion and summoning emotion using the syntax of paint. Each of these painters covers a somewhat different, but overlapping, portion of the painting spectrum. Contrasts between subject matter and painting technique and the artist’s choice of which elements are stylized versus which are sharply focused gives each artist's work its singular voice. Curated by John Wehrle, a California artist best known for his unique site-specific public artworks.
