“Painting the Figure Now” seeks to show quality paintings that investigate the many ways we see the human figure now. Contemporary approaches to portraiture, narrative, and any and all visualizations focusing on the human form in life, action, play, work, and repose. The museum is seeking artists who understand the finest traditions of figurative art. “We believe the human form is an endlessly interesting subject with inexhaustible potential,” says the museum. “We want to see humanity with a relevant, fresh, and contemporary feeling.”
