Benjamin Patterson: A Classical Renaissance

Opening reception at the Copley Society of Art on October 6th from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Copley Society of Art is proud to present A Classical Renaissance an exhibition comprised of oil paintings by Benjamin Patterson. A Classical Renaissance presents a collection of paintings belonging not so much to the modern or postmodern art world as to an ancient tradition. Patterson provides much context about his show and discusses how his artwork defies the rules of many modern painters. Benjamin Patterson explains, "Édouard Manet and Honoré Daumier (believed) that an artist must be of his time, my paintings follow another rule of art which was taught in the old academies and held sway for hundreds of years before their demise in the early 20th century."
