The Pence Gallery will present an exhibition of Bay Area figurative painters selected by San Francisco art critic DeWitt Cheng, on view from October 1 through November 10, 2013.
Six Bay Area figurative painters illustrate with wisdom, imagination, and considerable humor, the strength of realism to convey an alternate or superior reality. Bay Area art critic DeWitt Cheng selected paintings and drawings by artists Arthur Bell, Mark Bryan, William Harsh, Chris Leib, Pierre Merkl, and Michael Kerbow that feature varying levels of pictorial realism. Reality2 features individual visions that are imaginative, personal, and idiosyncratic, often drawing from representational sources.
