Several of the nation’s top representational artists are headed to this New York City gallery next month for a stunning group exhibition. All artistic sprits are welcome during “Spiritu Vivae.” Who’s included and where?

“Spiritu Vivae” will surely be a fantastic exhibition when it opens at New York City’s Dacia Gallery today, March 30. Featuring the works of Erin Anderson, Patt Baldino, Ryan Chapman, Paula Craioveanu, Kristy Gordon, Lisa Ficarelli-Halpern, Travis Little, Sari Mallow, Iliya Mirochnik, Michael O’Sullivan, William Reed, Kerry Simmons, Dori Spector, and Leah Yerpe, the show is a tour de force of representational talent.

Via the gallery, “This exhibition embodies an eclectic mix of contemporary artists that focus on representational art through painting and drawing. The collection contains a mosaic of work through a life-long study of anatomy, depth, color and light through the unique vision of each artist. From renowned representational artists Erin Anderson and Travis Little to classically influenced Ilya Mirochnik and rising stars Paula Craioveanu and Kerry Simmons. Fusing together an achievement of what is currently being created in representational art at the peak of a new movement by inspiring artists.”

“Spiritu Vivae” opens on March 30 and will continue through April 28. To learn, more visit Dacia Gallery.
