Thought-provoking and moving, these contemporary works of art capitalize on everything that is fresh and alluring about the art scene of the present. Each artist brings something new and energizing to traditional subjects such as the portrait, still life, and space. These unconventional, contemporary works of art feel rooted in their craft while also breaking the mold into a progressive and captivating new realm of art making. Inspired by a sense of realism, these artists take the leap into a world of unexplored social relevance by utilizing abstracted viewpoints.

“ONE” will run through April 6, 2016. Gallery hours are by appointment only. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid or Katie Murray atartroomfw@gmail.com and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows, and to join our mailing list.
