Today's daily oil painting is a detail view of an arch and column on the front facade of the Detroit Institute of Arts on Woodward Ave in Detroit. There has been some talk about selling a few of the gems from the DIA's collection if an emergency manager takes over the City of Detroit. Click here for recent discussions on this topic.

EXHIBITION: 1 - 17 March, 2012
I am very happy to be included in this exhibition.
A new exhibit opening this week at Peter Walker Fine Art Gallery
in Adelaide, South Australia, was born from the relationships made
between artists on the internet. Curated by Australian painter Jim Thalassoudis, More Real than Real,
features American and Canadian realist artists who might not have had
the opportunity to exhibit together, let alone in Australia, had they
not been introduced to each other and each other's work through the web.
Coinciding with the Adelaide Festival of Arts, the show will run from March 1st through the 17th. It is the fourth large venture generated by Cube Contemporary Art Projects,
a non-traditional art gallery founded by Thalassoudis and fellow-artist
Dianne Gall, which works with other display spaces to generate
exhibitions "locally, nationally, and internationally."
The artists featured in the exhibit include:
TRAVIS MICHAEL BAILEY from Union, Missouri
MARINA DIEUL from Montreal, Quebec
JEFF GOLA from Moorestown, New Jersey
JASON JOHN from Jacksonville, Florida
TARA JUNEAU from Victoria, British Columbia
JONATHAN KOCH from USA
LACEY LEWIS from Kansas City, Missouri
STEPHEN MAGSIG from Detroit, Michigan
BRIAN MARTIN from Providence, Rhode Island
JENNIFER NEHRBASS from Albuquerque, New Mexico
GRAYDON PARRISH from Austin, Texas
LEE PRICE from Beacon, New York
CINDY PROCIOUS from Chattanooga, Tennessee
JONATHAN QUEEN from Cincinnati, Ohio
PIERRE RABY from Montreal, Quebec
KATHERINE STONE from Victoria, Canada
JOSHUA SUDA from Nanticoke, Pennsylvania
SADIE JERNIGAN VALERI from San Francisco, California
During the 2012 Adelaide Festival in March we are very excited
to be able to present a group of realist paintings by artists from the
U.S.A. and Canada in
the exhibition Realism from the USA & Canada.
This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with Cube Contemporary Art Projects and has been many years in the making.
It promises to be a wonderful opportunity for an Australian
audience to view the latest in international realism art trends from
some of the most accomplished artists in this field.

Today's daily oil painting is a view of a ghost sign on a Woodward Ave building near Pasadena. This is around the corner from the Pasadena painting from a few days ago. This wall was revealed when the adjoining building burned down and was removed. Click on image for larger view. #1531
