PoetsArtists is organizing a special edition entitled PAINTING THE FIGURE NOW, with art co-curated by Didi Menendez and Walt Morton. Selected works from the publication will be invited into a dedicated exhibition at the newly-opened Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, at Opening date of the exhibition will be July 2018. 

PAINTING THE FIGURE NOW seeks to show quality painting that investigates the many ways we see the human figure now. Contemporary approaches to portraiture, narrative, and any and all visualizations focusing on the human form in life, action, play, work, and repose. We are seeking artists who understand the finest traditions of figurative art. We believe the human form is an endlessly interesting subject with inexhaustible potential. We want to see humanity with a relevant, fresh, and contemporary feeling. Any and all works that meet this broad guideline will be considered for exhibition.
