The Man Show

Published February 22, 2013    

Who is 21st-century man? Is he a romantic hero, a feminist nightmare, a sensitive dreamer, a gentleman? How do artists view contemporary men? In 2011, a well-received exhibition at the Kwan Fong Gallery on The New Romantic Figure included many female figures, but only two paintings with imagery of males. The Man Show is our response to that imbalance, presenting new works from the studios of some of the most respected members of the contemporary representational art world.

Curator Michael Pearce, chair of the Art Department, asked artists to send work showing their interpretations of the character of men. Featured artists are Michael Lynn Adams, Béla Bácsi, Steven DaLuz, Felicia Forte, Sean Ghobad, Pam Hawkes, Carolin Peters, David Kassan, Jeremy Lipking, Alexandra Manukyan, Pearce, Tony Pro and Aihua Zhou.

A reception will be held Saturday, March 9, at 7 p.m.

Admission is free. The Kwan Fong Gallery, located in the Soiland Humanities Center, is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Street parking is by permit 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visitor parking lots are located at the corner of Olsen Road and Mountclef Boulevard.
