MEMBER PREVIEW: Thursday November 11th 1999 6:00-9:00 p.m.
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday November 12th 1999 6:00-9:00 p.m.

The Museum of Contemporary Art /Denver is pleased to announce an exciting
exhibition of regional and national realist and surrealist paintings and
sculpture. Stepping from MOCA/D's previous exhibition of experimental
conceptual installations, Real to Surreal embraces contemporary painters
that use traditional techniques in painting and sculpture with realism as a
starting point then crossing into fantasy and the surreal. In this age of
instant process and gratification, attention spans seem short. The lore of
skilled craftsmanship seems more difficult to locate as we speed into a new
century. Work was chosen from both the east and west coasts and brought
together with our own regions best talent. Each of these twenty-three
artists share in kindred spirit their own unique personal vision combined with
an extraordinary literal talent. This exhibition is a toast to the last turn of
the century, and a toast to craft, skill, and unique visions being carried
into the next century.
