for real

An exploration of the normal way of life.  To make the ordinary seem extraordinary.  To depict the everyday people rather than heroes, kinds, and gods.   This exhibit brings together the concept of the realism period.  This type of art gets people to stop and appreciate the everyday things that may go unnoticed otherwise.

This work shows gives credit to the workers who would have otherwise been overlooked. The figures are not idealized. The artist doesn't show the figures faces to show how they are overlooked and real they are and how they would be overlooked had the artist not considered representing them.
This work shows the life of the everyday woman. Doing ordinary doing work that is not necessarily considered the toughest job. This work also displays realism qualities by using somber colors that make the work more "normal" and not so idealized.
Shows a normal act of a woman and her child waiting for the train. This allows the viewer to relate to figures in the work. Shows what acts would occur in regular everyday life. We know they are regular people because they do not have their own form of transportation and have to take the train.
This shows the average life of people who, despite the weather, are still accomplishing their designated jobs. The figures are not emphasized as to not idealize them. The weather depicted also takes away from people so they are not idealized.
Depicts a normal party that a regular person would attend. People are dancing and sitting around in the daytime. This not a strange event. Much of the people's faces in the crowd are not shown so the emphasis is on the event and not so much on exact people in order to not idealize them.
