Haynes Galleries is pleased to present “The Portrait in American Realism,” which runs June 13-July 27 at 91 Main St. in Thomaston. This traveling exhibition — previously on view at Haynes Galleries’ Nashville location — features drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs from 19th, 20th and 21st century American Realists. An opening reception will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 29, and the public is welcome.

“Dating back to the earliest form of artistic expression on cave walls, the human figure has remained a constant source of inspiration for artists throughout the centuries,” says Gary R. Haynes. “This exhibit will serve as a visual exploration of the changing approach to portrait making in America.”

“The Portrait in American Realism” is a celebration of faces, an ode to the human form, a triumph of expression. It is not to be missed. For more information, call 207-354-0605 or 615-430-8147 or visit Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment. 91 Main Street. Thomaston, Maine 04861
