Converge, Where Classical and Contemporary Collide

There is a very exciting fine-art exhibition and sale happening this month in NYC at 25CPW Gallery, November 15-27, 2012. Our family business, Matter Deep Publishing had the privilege of publishing the catalog for the show, which is available at the gallery or online.

There is an Opening Reception on Thursday, November 15 from 6 pm to 9 pm that is open to the public, and many of the exhibiting artists will be in attendance. More info is available on the website for the show.

Through their unique skill and vision, these 30 exhibiting artists—and others like them—are breaking barriers between classical and contemporary art, redefining the rules of those respective worlds, and pointing the way toward the art of tomorrow.

Allison is the former senior editor of American Artist magazine—is an arts writer, editor, columnist, and curator based in New York City and creator of the show.

You may see all the images on the Converge website but I wanted to share a few of my favorites here.
 I'm loving the fantastical quality of this Daniel Bilmes painting.
What's not to love about this Rachel Constantine self portrait. I've seen this painting in person and it is captivating.
 One of my favorite Alia El-Bermani paintings. I'm captured by the symbolic gesture of standing bare in a threshold
Beautiful and mysterious Diane Feissel. There is a soft and delicate quality to Diane's brushwork that makes me sigh.
Wonderful color and composition in this painting by Sandra Flood.
Super graphic quality to this Geoffrey Johnson piece.
Karen Kaapcke using a zinger spot of red in all these neutrals makes for a sparkling composition.
Michael Klein, wow.
Maria Kreyn's painting has it all, dynamic composition, juicy color, captured emotion.
When I found out Jeremy Mann used palette knives and brayers in his work, that explained much about the delectable paint surface. It looks good enough to eat
Adam Miller does the swirling drapery thing so well.
Oh so subtle palette from Gregory Mortensen.
Cool and warm color and pushed values make this piece from Tibor Nagy vibrant.
These shelves and Jordan Sokol are telling a story and I want to listen.

 You may find more about the show at Artists on Art.

Or in the November issue of American Artist Magazine.
Oh, how I wish I could be there in person, but alas, I will simply peruse my catalog, sip a glass of Pinot Grigio and imagine!
