Beaufort Art Association in Beaufort, SC, Features Exhibit of Master Copycats

Beaufort Art Association in Beaufort, SC, will present the exhibit, Masterpiece Masquerade, featuring works by BAA members that look like works by famous Masters, such as: Vermeer, Monet, Dufy, Dali, Winslow Homer and Degas. The exhibition will be on view from Jan. 6 through Feb. 14, 2009.

More than fifteen of our BAA Gallery artists will be featured "masquerading" as Master artists. Some will present artworks in a straightforward manner, emulating the original masterpiece, while others will add a "twist" to their chosen artist's work. This is serious art, but it's not to be taken too seriously.

Emulating and copying great artists has always been a proven way to improve one's artistic skills. Our featured artists had to research, study and practice the styles and techniques used by their chosen Master.

While paying homage to the original master artwork, either in truth or in spoof, you will find our local Masterpiece masqueraders' works can rival the art found in the great museums of the world.

Come see how clever our local artists are with paint, collage, drawing, mixed media or construction as they present updated makeovers of their favorite famous artworks. 

This show is a great way to brush up on your art history. Whether you prefer Leonardo da Vinci over Van Gogh, the Impressionists over the Dutch masters, or Georgia O'Keefe over Jackson Pollack, you're sure to find something that you'll recognize and enjoy.
