Expanding on the extraordinary response to our first “It Figures” juried show in 2016, ARC Gallery will re-visit this subject for an open-walls show this December. The exciting breadth and quality of work submitted for the first figurative review suggests that representational art is indeed thriving in the contemporary art world. This new (part 2) show seeks 1) to expand the call to include more broadly defined figuration–not necessarily confined just to the human body, and 2) to open the gallery to all artists/submissions. We expect this exhibition will be an exciting and eclectic collection of works reflecting the myriad ways in which artists conceive contemporary figurative imagery.

Exhibition dates:     Nov 22 – Dec 16, 2017

Gallery hours:     Wed-Sat 12-6pm    Sunday 12-4pm
