Best in Show: Tom Palmore
Tom Palmore has enjoyed a much-admired career as an extraordinary hyperrealist painter for more than 45 years. His ultra-real renderings of animals in oil and acrylic offer a unique, and often comical, juxtaposition of technical literalism and surreal, imaginative context—questioning the established conventions of photography and painting, especially as evident in the portrait genre. In 2019, LewAllen Galleries is proud to present a first—an exhibition of Tom Palmore’s drawings, entitled Best in Show. The exhibit opens on Friday, August 30 with an artist reception on Saturday, August 31 from 5-7pm and runs through September 28.
