Impressionist painters such as Renoir and Monet sought to evoke subjective and sensory impressions with their work, rather than simply recreating an objective reality.

Realists, on the other hand, seek to represent their subject in a lifelike manner, such as it is subjectively seen to the eye.

Our exhibition this month will compare and contrast the styles of impressionism and realism. The pieces chosen will showcase the traditional aspects and beauty of both movements.

Las Laguna Gallery is seeking submissions of original work comprised representing either Impressionism or Realism. There are no restrictions on content, medium or context, but your entries should fit within this theme.

We invite and encourage artists of ALL ages to participate and look forward to seeing your work. All local, national, and international artists, professional and amateur, are encouraged to submit their works for this art exhibition.
