The Human Figure in Art

American History and the past and present inclusiveness of its collective humanity has been of primary interest to Carl Hammer Gallery from the beginning of our existence. Indeed, it is primary in the shaping of both artist selection as well as our exhibition programming. Art world representation and an interest in the human figure, both two and three-dimensionally, has been prominent in its shaping of this gallery’s focus both insubject matter and its selection of artists featured throughout our forty-four-year history. This “Perspectives” exhibition expands the framework of both the viewing of ourselves and the surrounding world in which we all live. From each of these insightful and unique portrayals, we are led in a celebration and an even greater understanding of both the diverse expansiveness of our Humanity and the “one-ness” of its collective individuality as well.
