Showdown Between Impressionism and Realism: Daniel Gerhartz Versus Nicole Klassen Aug. 27 (Thu.) to Sep. 2 (Wed.)
These two celebrated American artists, increasingly popular for their outstanding and unique sensibilities, create exquisite paintings using opposing stylistic techniques. Daniel Gerhartz boldly applies paints to the canvas in the impressionist style while even going so far as to add in facets such as the textures of light, whereas realist painter Nicole Klassen imparts such great detail that even the individual characters on a newspaper in the scene are likely to be legible. This exhibition pits Gerhartz's depictions of figures enveloped in gentle warmth against Klassen's highly refined pictorial dignity, both of which create pleasing end results. Which style do you prefer?
