Exhibit at Weston Art Gallery: Narrative Figuration

This show caught my eye :

From the site:
For the exhibition Narrative Figuration, curator Daniel Brown has assembled an exceptionally talented cast of artists that shares a passion for painting and the human figure: Robert Anderson, Daniel O’Connor, Tim Parsley, Emil Robinson and Tina Tammaro. About their varying approaches to a common theme Brown states, "Working in a range of styles from the realist to the formalist to expressionist, all create narrative genre scenes, with the human figure central to them." They form a cohesive group of friends and colleagues who have the shared experience of attending the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Brown cites varied influences among the artists that span the masters of Dutch portraiture such as Rembrandt, Van Dyck and Vermeer to contemporary artists such as Giacometti, de Kooning, Bacon, Freud and Fischl.

Has anyone seen it? It runs from March 25 – June 5, 2011


  1. David and I were there at the opening. I thought it was really great, I definitely recommend going on a quieter day.
    Lots of talent represented, and I hate to play favorites, buuuuut...
    If you go, be sure to take in the pieces downstairs, and linger over the pastels by Emil Robinson. Great large-scale pieces by Dan O'Connor too.

  2. It might be worth mentioning, for anyone who missed the opening, that the Weston is having a "Gallery Talk" on Thursday, April 7th at 7pm.
