Daniel Gerhartz: The Continuum of Beauty

Published April 12, 2018

ARC Living Master tm Daniel Gerhartz is holding an exhibition of thirty-one paintings. It is the artist's first major retrospective. It includes many new, never before seen works.

"His subjects hover between traditional figurative painting and portraiture; only about five percent of his production is true commissioned portraiture.

Gerhartz often depicts an interrupted moment, as if the sitter has just realized the artist’s presence. In the majority of his paintings, he relies on his wife, children, or a friendly farmer as models. These paintings are not portraits per se but rather vignettes, archetypes of maternal love, childhood simplicity, or grandfatherly affection; they often evoke an earlier and more humble way of life."

The exhibition runs April 14 - July 29, 2018 at the Museum of Wisconsin Art, 205 Veterans Ave., West Bend, WI. The opening party will be held on April 14, 2018 from 2:00–5:00pm.
