Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Realism from the USA & Canada at Peter Walker Fine Art

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:55 pm

Realism from the USA & Canada at Peter Walker Fine Art: Jeff Gola, Joshua Suda, Sadie J. Valeri, Stephen Magsig, Jennifer Nehrbass, Jonathan Koch, Marina Dieul
Despite the cross-pollination of images facilitated by the internet, the actual opportunities for art lovers on one continent to see work by contemporary artists from another are not as frequent as one might like.

Peter Walker Fine Art, a gallery in South Australia, is featuring an exhibit of realist painters from the US and Canada that showcases several artists I’ve featured here on Lines and Colors, and several more of interest.

The exhibition will be on display until 17 March, 2012.

    I agree with your comment about the internet. I frequent a few sites which, in spite of the fact that no translation is available, provide an opportunity to enjoy other works. I am often surprised as it’s not what I am used to seeing here in the states. I really like the air plant from above.

    As do I. Google Translate is getting better, and is often good enough to get the gist of a site in another language.
