Description

A collection of expertly-executed reproductions in oil of world-renown masterworks, will open Friday, October 14, at Pence Gallery in Davis, CA. This year’s paintings will represent works by Modigliani, Picasso, Georges de La Tour, Jacques–Louis David, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, and several others. The paintings displayed will be completed by 18 ArtRoster artists.

The artists meet weekly at Snow Creek Studios to hone their skills and creative expression by drawing and painting their own individual pieces. ArtRoster artists utilizes techniques from the Old Masters’ atelier system of the European classical and impressionistic painting schools, as well as more contemporary methods.
