Preview: Contemporary Realism: Four Visions

  • “Roller Derby, 1977,” by Paul Hamilton
From the March 7, 2013 edition

The four visions of this exhibit come from former National Portrait Gallery of London exhibitors Mark Bush and Erin Wozniak, as well as Columbus painters Paul Hamilton and Sally Tharp. Each one’s contemporary realism is unique — from Bush’s portraits of local artists to Wozniak’s telling of family relations, Hamilton’s nostalgic look at the physical things in the backdrop of our lives to Tharp’s hyper-realistic surface paintings.
