Woodward Gallery launches their 20TH Anniversary Year with the group exhibition Sur-Real.

The exhibition title emphasizes each part of the word surreal to give us pause to search for the fantasy in each featured artist’s imagination. With broad strokes or subtle detail, new visions for what seem possible are evoked.

The individual artists step outside of the fundamental world of life and enter another dimension of the creative process. They work in fine contemporary painting, street art backgrounds, paper collage and screenprinting techniques, yet release the creative potential of their unconscious mind. Their work liberates our existence with insight into a new artistic reality.

The selected Artists: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Thomas Buildmore, Deborah Claxton, Sybil Gibson, Richard Hambleton, Kosbe, David Larson, Mark Mastroianni, Margaret Morrison, NoseGo, Kenji Nakayama, Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, stikman, Jeremy Szopinski, Francesco Tumbiolo, Jo Ellen Van Ouwerkerk, Cristina Vergano, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Andy Warhol are an influential force reinterpreting our conventional thoughts and expressions.
