TALENT 2005, a salon-style exhibition of new and emerging artists, will be on view at the Allan Stone Gallery. The exhibition will showcase realist and abstract paintings, as well as mixed-media works and sculpture.

The representational school includes hyperrealist figurative paintings, Flemish-influenced still lifes, modern impressionist landscapes, and traditional portraiture. The abstraction ranges from linear drawings to geometric, biomorphic paintings to large-scale mixed-media collages.

Among the featured artists are David Barnett, a master of intricate, mechanical and fantastical flying machines; Eric Barth, who paints modern impressionistic landscapes that are hauntingly atmospheric yet peaceful; Lucien Dulfan, who creates mixed-media collages juxtaposing soviet era sci-fi imagery with seventeenth century royal portraiture; Richard Harper, who paints hyperrealist nude studies; Brian Haverlock, whose works put a surrealist spin on religious iconography, while maintaining an "old master" technique; Duane Keiser, whose intimate portraits of everyday objects are reminiscent of eighteenth century still lifes; Paul Lorenz, who makes meticulous linear abstractions that are rooted in architectural schematics; Madeline Silber, whose minimal biomorphic compositions are vibrant and quirky; and Brandon Soloff, who is a modern traditionalist of Northern European-style portraiture.

Exhibition: September 10 - October 8, 2005
