Refigured:Radical Realism

Classical is the new radical. An exhibition of contemporary artwork by 12 Austin artists at the vanguard of the new wave of contemporary realism. Austin, internationally recognized for its trend-setting creative culture, is now at the vanguard of an emerging Figurative Art Renaissance. 

Opening February 10th and running through March 10, 2018, “Refigured: Radical Realism” unites twelve of Austin’s best figurative artists for an exhibition, to be held at the Julia C. Butridge Gallery as the Dougherty Arts Center celebrates its 40th anniversary.

For over a century realism was sidelined by modern and conceptual approaches but in a world of alternative facts, realist figurative art is finding new audiences as a new wave of artists are transforming classical art training into a new realism movement.  

The show will showcase Austin’s best figurative artist and their newest, most exciting work, including painting and sculpture in a variety of mediums.
