“Exploration in Realism: Conceptual to Traditional,” a group show juried by Sam Cady of Friendship, runs through Saturday, Jan. 30 at Tidemark Gallery, 902 Main St./Route 220.

Cady, an artist and career instructor in the Master of Fine Arts Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York, said the show is a small sample of “the variety of moods, observations, humors, imaginations and gifts of artists in this small part of the world.”

The show features 43 paintings and drawings that seem to work together for this show. Artists represented are Jon Luoma, Bill Tomsa, Ian Bruce, Louise King, Katharina Keoughan, Barbara Sullivan, Debra Arter, Mat O’Donnell, Joseph Cousins, Scott Davis, K. Min, Jan Janville, Barbara Bean, David Cadbury, Alana VanDerwerker, Jean Kigel, Joel LeVasseur, Jan Janville, Liliana Thelander, Carole Sloane, Susan Corcoran, Judy Nixon, Dan Kirchoff, Jonathan Frost, David Bickmann, Will Wilkoff, Maryanne Storer, Dennis Pinette, Susan Corcoran, Matt Rota, Ralph Bush, Sue Dixson, Ralf Feyl, Nancy Wissemann-Widrig, Joyce Eames Steel and Phoebe Bly.
