On Realism: Fall 2020 Invitational
Original artwork from faculty members of the Florence Academy of Art
Virtually on display at Hagan Fine Art
Online Exhibition November 1 – 30, 2020
This special body of original artwork was curated by Tanvi Pathare, a graduate of and now the Principal Instructor of Intermediate Advanced Drawing and Painting at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. Hagan Fine Art has been proud to represent Ms. Pathare and share her work with collectors for the past five years.
“All of the works are an individual expression of these artists’ work, but the red thread that connects them all is their ability to transcend life around them into moments of timeless beauty. I am fortunate to call them my colleagues and friends.” – Tanvi Pathare
The Florence Academy of Art is a small and dynamic art school in the Tuscan region capital city dedicated to the training of young artists through the combination of intense observation with advanced craft skills. Started by American painter Daniel Graves in 1991, the Academy focuses on teaching in the classical-realist tradition rooted in the 19th century, but also addresses the creative and professional position of the artist in a contemporary environment. The school is a branch of the International Academy of Fine Art and is recognized as a certificate program by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
“On Realism” includes eight pieces by Daniel Graves in this virtual show alongside works from FAA faculty members: Daniela Astone, Melissa Franklin Sanchez, Maureen Hyde, Vitaliy Shtanko, and Tanvi Pathare.
“There is a combination of history and timelessness in Realist art. The peace that can be found in this style of painting calms the soul.” – Gallery Director, Allison Hull
