Museum Tour

My «Freedom of Speech» is selected for a museum tour in USA. I am proud to be among all the real great artists on this tour. Since this will be a tour from May 19 till June 11. in 2016 or even longer – I will not be there. Hopeful my painting will do good without me. You can read more about the tour under «exhibitions» here I have the press release were all the other artists are listed:

MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM

MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM is a new initiative intended to recognize achievement in realism and result in a traveling museum exhibition. The exhibition consists of 70 artworks by 65 artists selected by a jury-of-peers shaped by input from the project’s tour director. Artcyclopedia.com/ defines Contemporary Realism as a movement which emerged in America, in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s concerned with “the straightforward realistic approach to representation which continues to be widely practiced in this post-abstract era . . . (and) is different from Photorealism, which is somewhat exaggerated and ironic and conceptual in its nature.” The International Guild of Realism represents some 350 artists from some 35 countries around the world who form a disparate group, and, though literate in conventions of Modern Art, choose to work in traditional forms.

The mission of the International Guild of Realism is to advance realism in fine art and to promote the careers of the representational artists it represents. Among the goals of The Guild are to recognize the best realists working today, and to share their work with the public. Toward that end, The International Guild of Realism reached out to David J. Wagner, L.L.C., to produce a traveling exhibition of museum-quality works representative of the best work of its members today who work in a range of media including oil, acrylic, egg tempera, graphite and colored pencil.

Jurors responsible for selecting works for MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM included: Donald Clapper, painter and Founding Charter Member, International Guild of Realism; Vala Ola, painter and sculptor from Iceland (now U.S), and Charter Member, International Guild of Realism and Art Renewal Center Living Master; and William Rowett, Scottsdale Realism Collector. David J. Wagner, Ph.D., served as Curatorial Advisor to the jury. MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM is comprised of 70 paintings by 65 artists whose work embodies high standards of excellence and ranges from ultra-contemporary to timeless traditional realism.
