Exhibition view

PR ART NEWS – The depiction of the human figure in art goes back so far that it has always been there. From small Paleolithic figurines to the ceiling of the sistine chapel and from the paintings of Pablo Picasso to the conceptual self portraits of Cindy Sherman; the human figure proliferates art history. Throughout the 20th century, various trends in the art world claimed that figurative work was dead but today, this is something that we know to be false. 

The exhibition The Human Figure demonstrates that figurative artwork is alive and well in 2016. Through painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking; this exhibition offers many unique points of view and a wide variety of styles and techniques. 

A national juried exhibition devoted to the human form, featuring 27 artists from across the country. This exhibition was juried by Jonathan Binstock, director of the Memorial Art Gallery,Rochester,
