Billy Norrby: Painting Demonstration
NEXT IN BOOTHView All
IX is the first, ground-breaking art show, symposium, and celebration dedicated solely to imaginative realism—bringing artists, students, collectors, and art fans together for an annual gathering intended to inspire and create further awareness and zeal for imaginative realism and all that’s encompassed in the realm of the fantastic.
As the largest display of original imaginative realist art in the world, IX is an entirely unique experience where artists are free to participate in the show just as attendees and students do, students have the opportunity to sign up for private portfolio reviews by industry art directors and galleries, and all present have numerous opportunities to be inspired by and grow in love for the vast array of work and people in this incredible field.
IX Arts is the organization behind a range of projects designed to enhance popular and critical appreciation of contemporary imaginative realism. Initially founded as the home of the annual IX show, since 2008 IX Arts has branched out into other areas, including museum and gallery exhibitions, books, and the virtual IX Gallery - the world's only gallery exclusively dedicated to imaginative realism (www.ixgallery.com).
Under the watchful guidance of co-founders Patrick and Jeannie Wilshire, IX Arts has grown into an organization recognized internationally as a leader in the contemporary imaginative realist movement, and within the broader contemporary realism art world, partnering with galleries and organizations such as the Art Renewal Center, Allentown Art Museum, and the Delaware Art Museum to help bring recognition to imaginative realism as the cutting edge of contemporary realist art.
