Judge and Juror Max Ginsburg

Mills Pond Gallery is very excited to present this Contemporary Realism exhibition and we are especially grateful to our Juror/judge Max Ginsburg for enabling us to celebrate the strength of Realism as an art form and provide a forum for our public audiences to experience the moving and original ways artists depict the world around them.

Sixty-eight works in Oils in a broad range of representational styles will be on view, displaying interpretations of realism seen through the lens of 46 contemporary artists. Various subjects from landscape, urban views, interiors, still life, and portraiture show the unique creative eyes of these artists as they depict the world around them, each sharing their own perspective and passions through their art. B Artists hail from 11 states including CT, FL, GA, MD, MN, NC, NH,NJ, NY, OR and PA
