Reception: October 11, 6-9 PM

Pence Gallery

Davis, CA 95616

Six Bay Area figurative painters illustrate with wisdom, imagination, and considerable humor, the strength of realism to convey an alternative 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.

Reality 2
features individual visions that are imaginative, personal, and idiosyncratic, often drawing from representational sources.

Curator Talk: October 11, 5 - 6 PM (FREE)
Join DeWitt Cheng in a quick overview tour of the exhibit, with support from the artists.
