Shows & Events
The International Guild of Realism's primary mission is to advance realism in fine art through museum exhibitions, art gallery shows, workshops and education programs conducted by our members, marketing support, and internet exposure. For us, "realism" ranges from the classical based upon traditional, academic-style painting to the contemporary where cutting edge techniques and a wide variety of subject matter are used to comment on today's world. Our members represent a wonderful spectrum of styles including (but not limited to) Trompe l'Oeil, photorealism, surrealism, and super-realism. The International Guild of Realism was founded by a group of leading professional realism artists from around the globe in 2002 with four goals:
- Recognize the best realists working today.
- Create gallery and museum exhibition opportunities.
- Provide advertising and marketing support for IGOR members.
- Offer a bridge between art collectors and the highest quality realist art, created by our members.
