Westwood Gallery has announced an exhibit of original paintings by nationally and internationally known artists working in hyperrealism. The exhibit opens August 13 and continues through September 16, 2017. A reception to meet the artists will be held Sunday, August 13 from 2:00-5:00 pm. The gallery is free and open to the public.

The show features the work of Allan Gorman, Cesar Santander, Mark Oberndorf and Ilo Oxa. The artists share a common evolution from the style first recognized in the 1970’s by galleries such as O. K. Harris as photorealism. The fundamental difference between Hyperrealism and Photorealism is in the artist’s approach to their work. Hyperrealism is about something more than technique. While photo realists distance themselves from adding emotion and intent into their work, hyperrealists insert narration and feelings into their paintings.

Both originals and prints, as well as commissions will be available and the artists will be signing and dedicating their works on request.

Westwood Gallery is located at 10 Westwood Avenue, Westwood, New Jersey, and is open 10:00 am-6:00 pm Monday through Saturday. For more information, call 201-666-1800 or visit www.Westwoodartgallery.com.
