City-Scapes: Silkscreen Prints by Photorealist Artists
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 to Sunday, Sep 02, 2012
The Photorealist silkscreen prints in this 2012 exhibition explore the use of photographs in artistic production. Photorealism is a style of art that emerged in the United States in the mid-1960s as an offshoot of Pop art. Early Photorealist painters created what appeared to be an artistic replication of a photograph with no apparent comment. Artists also used different printing techniques to comment on the Photorealist reliance on photographs as source and subject.
