It’s been almost four years since Jeremy Lipking — one of the country’s most respected realist painters — had a solo exhibition, meaning this weekend is quite special for one California gallery. Details here.

Any fine art event with the name Jeremy Lipking in it is one worth noting, especially when it’s a solo exhibition. This one features 20 stunning new paintings at Culver City, California’s Arcadia Contemporary gallery.

It opens this weekend, on March 11, and one can expect major crowds of fine art enthusiasts and collectors to converge on Arcadia Contemporary. Indeed, for years Lipking has amassed quite a following for his painterly works featuring figures in natural environments. “From twilight skies cloaking nude bodies to forests that embrace wandering figures, Lipking’s works contain a sense of mystery and majesty,” the gallery reports. “In just a few short years, the artist’s meteoric rise to the top of the representational art world has been accompanied by numerous awards and merits.

“A resident of Calabasas, CA, Lipking relies on locations in California, such as the Pacific Coast, Malibu Canyon, and the Eastern Sierra Mountains, for inspiration. To create his works, Lipking paints on location with a live model or, if conditions are prohibitive, takes photographs as reference. He prefers to work outdoors, laying out as many pieces as possible in one sitting. The ideal method, he says, is to make a quick painting from life, photograph his model, and take the material back to his studio for completion.

“Arcadia Contemporary is pleased to host the artist’s fifth exhibition with the gallery. Since relocating from NYC to Los Angeles in 2016, the gallery has made a strong impact on the Los Angeles art scene as one of the few galleries exclusively featuring skilled, representational painting.”

Opening March 11, the exhibition will be on view through April 2. To learn more, visit Arcadia Contemporary.
