Go Figure: Contemporary Interpretations of the Human Figure

Opening reception: Saturday, July 2, 4 – 7pm
Exhibition dates: July 2 – 30, 2011

Arts on Douglas is pleased to announce the opening of a new group exhibition entitled Go Figure: Contemporary Interpretations of the Human Figure slated for the month of July at the downtown New Smyrna Beach art gallery.   This exhibition will provide contemporary artists’ perceptions of the physical form in both two and three dimensional works of art created by artists represented by the gallery.  The artists whose work will be shown in this exhibition are:

Jay Antablian
Jean Banas
Donne Bitner
Tom Brewer
Jill Cannady
Judi Dold
René Guerin
Gustaf Miller
Jan Miller
Gretchen Nass
Christine Peloquin
Gene Roberds
Mary Schimpff Web
Randall Smith
Anna Tomczak
Enzo Torcoletti
John Wilton

Together they will display the variety of ways the human form can be manipulated to convey a meaning or reference.

Throughout the history of art, artists have had a fascination with recreating the human form.  In this exhibition you will see artists utilizing oil and acrylic paint, photography, marble, terra cotta, charcoal and mixed media to express their ‘take’ on this recurrent theme and with their unique approach breathe new life into an old subject.

Please join us to view these 17 artists’ interpretations of the human form.  This exhibition will open to the public with a reception for the artists on Saturday, July 2 from 4 – 7pm (free to the public) and run through July 30.  This event is held in conjunction with the New Smyrna Beach Downtown Arts District Gallery Walk which includes galleries located on Douglas and Canal Streets.
