Peter Walker Fine Art
 Realism from USA and Canada

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
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.

All prices are in Australian dollars and include GST. International currency fluctuations may result in slight price changes.
