Contemporary Realism Biennial

September 20 – November 30, 2014

Every two years, FWMoA organizes the Contemporary Realism Biennial, an exhibition of the most compelling trends in realism as explored by the most skilled American and international artists.

This invitational and juried exhibition highlights the strength and innovation of America's current trends in realism. We are proud to expand the discourse on this enduring tradition in presenting the 2014 installment of this dynamic contemporary exhibition. Although a seemingly narrow focus, this exhibition presents a vast range of ideas, approaches, styles, and subject matter by masters of realism, including Tom Martin, Roberto Bernardi, and Alyssa Monks.

Prize jurors this year include Frank Bernarducci of Bernarducci.Meisel.Gallery, and Charles Shepard III of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

Be sure to see it when you join us for the Fall Party on October 10, 6-9pm.

*This exhibition is part of the FWMoA Special Exhibition Series. To see this exhibit, Special Exhibition tickets at $5 per person are required beyond general admission.
