figures in action in a realist setting. Something more than a sporting event, where the human body was being used as a tool in tasks that only a human could do. I was painting a portrait on a beach in North Carolina when a group of young men starting fishing with a seine net. It was an activity meant for a painting. They welcomed me to take photos of them and out of the 1,000 photos or so I took that day, I painted this series,” says Arthur Egeli, whose work March to the Sea is among those pieces.
17 Washington Street, Sag Harbor, NY 11963, (631) 725-8469 www.grenninggallery.com Celebrating 20 years in business in 2017, the Grenning Gallery has nurtured many classically trained painters so they can pursue their passion. Since the beginning, Grenning has had an interest in figurative paintings. Ramiro has been with the gallery since it first opened its doors in December on Greene Street in SoHo, NYC. His sophisticated figurative paintings are a cornerstone to the gallery’s rich spectrum of work. The most recent
works, Hymn and Allegory to Chopin (Nocturne), offer two examples of poetic realism. Ben Fenske’s current series, the Bea Nudes, are examples of what a great living painter can create within the figurative realm. Grenning also shows the work of many living figurative painters including Anthony Ackrill, Stephen Bauman, Rob Bodem, Marc Dalessio, Kate Lehman, Kristy Gordon, Dan Graves, Travis Schlaht, Patricia Watwood, and more.
CHRISTIANE DAVID FINE ART GALLERY
112 N. Prince Street, Lancaster, PA 17630, (717) 293-0809 www.christianedavid.com While Christiane David describes her painting style as free and spontaneous,
technique is the tool she always keeps in mind. She paints without fear and follows her instinct. Sometimes magical things happen. When David paints either a landscape, a floral or a model, she likes to capture the very soul of the subject, translating life and emotion into colors and movement. “The human body is a beautiful landscape and the perfect balance of strength and fragility,” she says. David’s paintings can be seen on her website and also in her gallery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She welcomes commission works as well.
