State of the Art Exhibition: A Stark Look at Humanity by Vancouver Painter James Picard

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - In the contemporary art world, white cubes and spare spaces abound, providing a blanched background for the artwork that has been regurgitated for decades. Forget about all that as of right now.

Canadian artist James Picard's work is about his work and the work he does best is art. He lives and breathes it. He produces art the way the masters before him produced it, masterfully and abundant in all mediums and styles. He could very well be the hardest working artist of the 21st century.

James Picard's work will be featured at his 2nd Annual State of the Art exhibition on May 27th, 2016 at the Terminal City Club in downtown Vancouver. A majority of the paintings on display will be available for sale, and visitors will get a chance to meet the artist in person.

State of the Art will include works from every phase of his renowned 40 year career. It showcases his extraordinary range and definitive style. More than 125 works by Picard will be on display, including some pieces from his recent series, The Dark and the Wounded, which is currently preparing for its European tour. There will also be a screening of the documentary film highlighting the North American tour.

10% of all art sales from this event will be donated to local Vancouver charity, the CKNW Orphans' Fund. The fund is dedicated to promoting the health and welfare of physically and mentally challenged and disadvantaged children in BC communities.
