On the evening of January 26th in beautiful old town Scottsdale, Arizona the renowned Marshall Gallery will be hosting the 12th annual International Guild of Realism “Winter Salon” show with many extraordinary paintings on display and for sale. The opening of the show takes advantage of Thursday night art walk when Main street galleries celebrate art in all its forms and come together to highlight the beautiful works by so many talented artists from across the country and abroad.
The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is dedicated to supporting and promoting the artists and their creations that showcase the best of the best in representational art.
There will be many of the artists themselves in attendance on opening night to talk with patrons and collectors, and anyone who has an appreciation for art. Also, IGOR and Marshall Gallery are providing opportunities for the attendees to partake in demonstrations of painting technique and style and plenty of discussions by keynote speakers on the subject of representational fine art in the world today. Main street in Scottsdale is lined with galleries, but none so eclectic as the Marshall with its stunning showroom and plentiful wall space lined with the breathtaking pieces of art carefully selected for this years show, and of course there is works by the specific artists that the Marshall Gallery represents throughout the year.
This year I “Craig Zuger”was very fortunate to have had one of my oil paintings juried into the Winter Salon show, and I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to participate! My landscape painting, simply titled “The Pond” is a 20in. x 24in. oil on canvas depicting a pond near my home in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
I loved the atmosphere of the day and the perspective of the pond receding into the distance. While I paint many different subjects, landscapes are my first love and I hope I have captured that love on canvas. All who visit the International Guild of Realism at the Marshall Gallery are in for an art adventure that you wont soon forget. Immerse yourself in the exquisite art, the beautiful gallery and the gorgeous old town Scottsdale.
