We are thrilled to have John Albert Seed, author of the book, Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World, join our virtual art talk series.
Published in 2019, Disrupted Realism focuses on the works of contemporary painters who are “challenging and reshaping the tradition of realism.”
The book features beautiful color images and interviews with 38 painters including: Mia Bergeron, Zoey Frank, Ann Gale, Alex Kanevsky, Catherine Kehoe, Jerome Lagarrigue, Alyssa Monks, Kai Samuels-Davis, Nick Runge, and Zack Zdrale among many others.
John will give a virtual talk and presentation on this new phenomenon in painting and and will explain how he spotted this trend as a working blogger/critic for the Huffington Post and will show images from his book to add context. After John’s 45 minute presentation there will be a 15 minute Q and A session. All members of the audience will be eligible for a give away of one of John’s books
