March 10 – May 19: The Imaginary – Realism and the Imagination
A. Mosley – Crimson Tide
March 10-May19, 2018 Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard
The Imaginary, exhibiting art comingling realism and the imagination, is directly inspired by the 2019 Traditional Representational Art Conference’s exploration of the relationship between imagination and 21st-century representational art. It attempts to give substance to the mental investigation of imagination’s role in representational art by sharing current samples of work by 23 remarkable Southern California artists who have been enfolding an imaginary approach into their handling of traditional genres. Their blending of ingenuity and masterful technique heightens viewers appetite and admiration for contemporary representational art.
