‘Painting & Drawing 2015, part one’

“Long Live Painting!” This battle cry may not be as famous as “Vive la France” but it’s a favorite among artists of a certain ilk — because there are still people who want to proclaim “Painting is Dead” (artists are an outspoken, feisty bunch). So, to prove the point that painting has not been destroyed by the latest technology, Galerie Hertz organized “Painting & Drawing 2015, part 1.” The group exhibition, mixing emerging and established artists, features Justin Ankenbauer, Kayla Bischoff, Emily Church, Ken Hayden, Dennis Mader and Marsha Staiger, as well as gallery co-owner Billy Hertz. Galerie Hertz feels paintings and drawings are so popular that it will soon be presenting part two of this show. Stay tuned.
