Historically, Renaissance was a period of cultural flourishing and artistic innovation and word itself means revival and rebirth. Even today, to be in the time of renaissance signifies to be in the middle of something culturally rich and exciting. Inspired by the wide field of realism and its numerous forms Gallery 1261 in Denver will organize The Renaissance of Realism, a group show that celebrates the rebirth of this art field. The upcoming exhibition will feature works by over fourthy artists that depict their unique visions of this prolific concept.

The Renaissance of Realism Group Exhibition in Denver

The Renaissance of Realism artworks are carefully chosen to portray the important place each one of the featured artists holds in this particular genre. Realism seen trough the eyes of various artists is portrayed in various degrees, ranging from hyper-real to semi-abstract artworks. In his paintings, artist Anthony Waichulis gives a contemporary twist to traditional topics. His artworks are compelling and convey a sense of humor and originality, as the artist creates a bond between the seemingly unrelated objects. Artist David Cheifetz will add an apocalyptic tone to the show with his death inspired sinister artworks.

The Exploration of Realsm at 1261 gallery

With a wide range of subject matter and an abundance of works the audience will be left with a lot of material to consume and think about. And although the selected pieces may appear completely different they all merge together to create the true exploration of the subject. Undoubtedly, realism has proven to be a fertile ground for the development of numerous concepts and ideas. From the beautiful, seductive female portraits by Mia Bergeron, to the minimalist compositions of Scott Fraser, artworks at the upcoming exhibition vastly differ to show how extensive the genre of realism truly is. The Renaissance of Realism group show will be on display at Gallery 1261 in Denver from November 13th til December 5, 2015.
