MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM
Tour Produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C.

INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM Logo

MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM is a new initiative intended to recognize achievement in realism and result in a traveling museum exhibition. The exhibition consists of 70 artworks selected by a jury-of-peers shaped by input from the project's curator/tour director. Artcyclopedia.com defines Contemporary Realism as a movement which emerged in America, in the late 1960's and early 1970's concerned with "the straightforward realistic approach to representation which continues to be widely practiced in this post-abstract era . . . (and) is different from Photorealism, which is somewhat exaggerated and ironic and conceptual in its nature." The International Guild of Realism represents some 350 artists from some 35 countries around the world who form a disparate group, and, though literate in conventions of Modern Art, choose to work in traditional forms.

The mission of the International Guild of Realism is to advance realism in fine art and to promote the careers of the representational artists it represents. Among the goals of The Guild are to recognize the best realists working today, and to share their work with the public. Toward that end, The International Guild of Realism reached out to David J. Wagner, L.L.C., to produce a traveling exhibition of museum-quality works representative of the best work of its members today who work in a range of media including oil, acrylic, egg tempera, graphite, watercolor and colored pencil. MASTERWORKS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL GUILD OF REALISM is comprised of a range of high quality artwork, extending from the ultra-contemporary to timeless traditional realism.
