Forum Gallery presents an emblematic, current work by each of 21 contemporary artists. Steven Assael, Susan Hauptman and Bernardo Siciliano exhibit complex figurative works on a large scale; Robert Bauer, Alan Magee and Ellen Eagle show intimate, highly personal, portraits; and Alan Feltus, Odd Nerdrum and Paul Fenniak are represented by intense, narrative paintings.

The exhibition includes a dramatic charcoal drawing of seven bulls by William Beckman, a collage of Che Guevara by David Mach, and Cybèle Young’s latest imaginative paper construction.
