Perceptual Painters 1

January 15 – March 1, 2015
The Mitchell Gallery Celebrates 25 Years

Opening Reception: Sunday, January 25, 3:30 – 5:00pm

This exhibition of American Perceptual Painters focuses on a lineage of American Realism begun, in part, by Edwin Dickinson (1891-1978), a student and contemporary of Charles Hawthorne (1872-1930), through the present day. Though representing various genres, themes, and approaches, these artists share a commonality which involves painting from direct observation. This exhibition celebrates a representational lineage that has persevered through the antagonism of the Modern era and continues to enrich the discussion of contemporary American art.

This exhibition is curated by Matt Klos, associate professor, Anne Arundel Community College, with assistance from Lucinda Edinberg.
