The Magic Of Realism
When Gary Haynes, owner of Haynes Galleries in Franklin, Tennessee, was looking through the 2019 Art Renewal Center Salon entries for an exhibition at his gallery, his goal was to select pieces that were more than just technically sound.

“I was looking for works with imagination, with a different twist and a strong narrative,” he says. “I was looking for that combination of extra ‘somethings’ that pushed them above and beyond. The combination of all of this creates magic.”

The paintings he chose for the show, The Magic of Realism, do just that, he says. In all, there will be around 34 works on view, with pieces from Lucas Bononi, Anastasia Firenze, Jonathan Hodge, Mark Heine, Mark Larson, Ron Hicks, Lucia Heffernan, Bryony Bensly and Sookyi Lee.
