MM Fine Art is pleased to present “Contemporary Realism,” a selection of paintings, drawings and sculpture featuring notable contemporary luminaries such as Daniel Sprick, Bo Bartlett, Jeanne Duvall, Sean Henry, along with emerging artists Pat Hobaugh and Matt Adelberg and others.

On view beginning December 8th, the exhibition will be highlighted by a special artist talk on December 14th featuring celebrated figurative painter Daniel Sprick.

Considered one of America’s leading contemporary realists, Daniel Sprick’s subjects range from extraordinarily realistic portraits to hauntingly contemplative still lifes and urban light filled landscapes. His paintings are wholly contemporary, and subtly blur the line between realism and abstraction. In a rare treat, the artist will give a demonstration of his portrait painting technique, during his talk this Friday evening in Southampton, NY.

Born in 1953 in Little Rock, Arkansas, Sprick currently lives and works in Denver, CO. Museum shows of his work include the Museum of Outdoor Art in Englewood, Colorado; the Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, Tennessee; the Evansville Museum of Art and Science, Indiana; and the Denver Art Museum.

Sprick’s work is represented in numerous public collections, among them the Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; the Denver Art Museum; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. An articulate spokesman about the nature of art and his own work, Sprick is also the subject of the 2017 PBS documentary, Daniel Sprick: Pursuit of Truth and Beauty.
