Under Pressure Lecture and Reception with Don Eddy

Date: 

Thursday, October 28, 2021

Description: 

You can join us in celebrating the opening of a new exhibition, "Under Pressure: Painting with Air – A Survey of Contemporary Airbrush Realism." Don Eddy will lead a lecture in the Great Hall at 6 p.m. There will be a reception following the lecture. Don Eddy (born 1944) is a contemporary representational painter. He gained recognition in American art around 1970 amid a group of artists that critics and dealers identified as Photorealists or Hyperrealists, based on their work’s high degree of verisimilitude and use of photography as a resource material. Eddy has worked in cycles, which treat various imagery from different formal and conceptual viewpoints, moving from detailed, formal images of automobile sections and storefront window displays in the 1970s to perceptually challenging mash-ups of still life and figurative/landscape scenes in the 1980s to mysterious multi-panel paintings in his latter career.
