Opening Receptions for Rounding Up the Realists & New Roads/Ancient Paths

Saturday, May 8, 7 - 9 pm

***Join us for the opening reception for Rounding Up the Realists (a group exhibition) and New Roads/Ancient Paths by Bruce St. Clair! This opening is part of a downtown gallery hop that includes the Kennedy Gallery, the White Water Gallery, Art on Main, and the Joan Ferneyhough Gallery.***

For close to a decade the Nipissing Realists exhibited artworks that faithfully reproduced what they saw and experienced as artists working in northern Ontario. Realism IS contemporary and all of these painters are still inspired to create recognizable stories, scenes and characters using oil, acrylic and watercolour paints. For this exhibit we are "rounding up the realists" bringing them back together as a collective of contemporary artists, and re-examining the role of "realism" in contemporary visual art practice.

The exhibition includes new or previously unseen works by original Nipissing Realist artists: Bruce St. Clair, Arlie Hoffman, Pam Adams, Kevin Hoffman, and Marie Stewart and by regional realist artists, June Stewart, Coral Young and Dianne Allen.

Be sure to visit the other galleries in the downtown gallery hop!
