Center of the Earth Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Annual Realism Exhibition

The Center of the Earth Gallery, located in the NODA District in Charlotte, NC, is proud to present the 4th Annual Realism Invitational, highlighting some of the nation's finest realist painters from Mar. 1 through Apr. 27, 2002.

Realism has been embraced more fervently in the past decade as individuals search for a vision of the world that reflects contemporary life in all its poignancy. What sets these painters apart from other highly accomplished realist painters is their persuasive and invigorating use of diverse and intriguing content. This is a national survey of the variety and splendor of this genre. A few of the featured artists include favorites like Robert Azank, whose unmistakable style is revealed through minimalist precision and keyed up color. Anthony Schepis uses curious objects in playful surreal settings that are activated by an otherworldly sense of light. Carol Lee Thompson paints in the style of the Old Masters, depicting fruit and objects in a luxurious manner. North Carolina artist Rebecca Fagg's use of light and shadow creates dramatic and timeless imagery of quiet interiors. All of these artists are avidly collected all over the country.

Center of the Earth Gallery also features the works of over forty contemporary emerging and established artists in all mediums. Critics and readers of two area publications voted Center of the Earth Gallery "Best Gallery" from 1995-2001.
