Everyday People: Mel Leipzig’s Figurative Realism
December 6, 2019 – April 19, 2020
New Jersey-based artist Mel Leipzig is heralded as one of today’s finest figurative realist painters. His subjects—family, friends, acquaintances, and fellow artists—occupy self-constructed places of identity, such as home or work, in subtle psychological portraits that place an equal importance on the setting. The exhibition features highlights from Leipzig’s career of over 60 years.
On Wednesday, December 25th, the Museum will be open from 12:00PM – 5:00PM. All the Galleries will be open and there will be a special film screening. Get details.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Mel Leipzig Trust. Additional support is provided by Gallery Henoch.
