Poets and Artists Group Show Opens Saturday at Arcadia Contemporary

Curated by John Seed, professor of art and art history at Mt. San Jacinto College and writer for Hyperallergic and The Huffington Post, the Poets and Artists group show of figurative realism royalty at Arcadia Contemporary is not to be missed.

Arcadia was founded in 2001 with a mission to exhibit highly skilled, representational artists. Originally located in the center of Manhattan’s creative, Soho District, the gallery attained international renown for featuring works that revealed their creators’ ability to paint and draw well in concert with unique, signature styles.

I've been a fan of the gallery for such a long time and I'm honored to be included in this show. PLEASE someone pinch me! I've been fortunate to have met many of the artists and I'm terribly disappointed to not be able to get to California and see old friends and their new artworks.

So I need a favor from "you" the reader. If you're in Culver City on Saturday, stop by Arcadia Contemporary, meet lots of cool artists, see the most amazing art, buy something, and take pictures to share on social media using the hashtag #PAshowatArcadia.
