Making a grand debut will be the work by James Van Fossan, entitled, Drama Magnifico. This 8 ft tall by 6 ft wide oil painting modern-day masterpiece took 4,000 hours over three years to complete. The work will be debuted with an original score written and performed by the Van Fossan himself.
Realism in the Raw will exhibit the works of Brandon Soloff, a classically trained painter and portraitist, and Jennifer Gennari, a classically trained Figurative artist. Both Soloff and Gennari’s works have been commissioned and exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.

“Work like Drama Magnifico comes along once in a generation and should be studied by everyone, as it is so perceptive of the drama in our lives. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for serious art collectors and is the most important piece of art created in the 21st century,” said David Goldstein, CEO of Jerry’s Artarama.
“Realism in the Raw exposes the human condition in its gritty and unrestrained form,” said Realism in the Raw director Samantha Velkoff. “From the moment you enter the exhibition, you are confronted with some of the most prolific works of art in contemporary realism.”
