Nicole Longnecker Gallery presents a unique group exhibition, “Industrialism in the Twenty-First
Century" featuring works from nine of America’s leading urban realist artists. The exhibit opens
Saturday, February 25, 2017 with an artist’s reception from 5pm – 8pm and runs through April 1,
2017.

SYNOPSIS: Nicole Longnecker Gallery presents a unique group exhibition, “Industrialism in the
Twenty-First Century’” featuring works from nine of America’s leading urban realist artists,
including a painting from Don Eddy, one of the foremost Realists of the post-war 20th
century. The exhibit is co-curated by modern realists Jan Anders Nelson (Sag Harbor,
WA) and Allan Gorman (West Orange, NJ).

“I am excited to present this group of artists and works to the Houston audience,” says
gallerist Nicole Longnecker. “As Houston has been described as the model for the new
American city, Industrialism is the new manifestation of America’s original art form,
Precisionism. Our group of Industrialism artists may use differing voices, but the message
is always one of wonder and appreciation for man-made subjects.”

ARTISTS: In the early part of the Twentieth Century, some American artists found voice for
their work in a fresh, new pictorial language celebrating power and the massive
growth of industrialism. This movement is often referred to as Industrialism or Precisionism.
This exhibit presents some of the best of today’s practitioners carrying on the tradition
of this aesthetic, with examples from one of America’s great Realists, Don Eddy, and
nine other superbly talented artists from across the US, Canada and Great Britain:

Don Eddy, Allan Gorman, Chris Klein, Roland Kulla, Sheryl Luxenburg, Stephen
      Magsig, Jan Anders Nelson, James Ritchie, Joseph Santos, and Mark Cervenka
