Among those participating is Dean Day Gallery, which will host “The Illusion of Reality,” an exhibition highlighting the best in contemporary realism. The show features work by Jelaine Faunce and Michael Zigmond, among others. The paintings are so lifelike, they can pass for photography.
The Sicardi Gallery, a showcase for the best contemporary work from Latin America artists, is currently hosting an exhibition by Oscar Muñoz. His quiet, powerful works explore the fragility of human life. The exhibition includes mixed media, photography and video works. Times and locations vary.
