Representing the Human Form

April 15 - June 11, 2023

The human figure has been depicted in art for thousands of years. From realism and documentary  to surrealism and abstraction the human form has been represented by showing the human experience  through the expression of emotions, ideas and beliefs.  The artist gives the viewer a glimpse into what it is to have a human experience.
