Zenith Gallery welcomes Drew Ernst to Washington with his first career solo exhibition. As a modern, contemporary figurative painter, this young artists large-scale canvases are intense and provocative. He is part of the next generation of American realism.
"Every emotion goes into my paintings - love, hate, joy, sadness - it's all in there. An amazing thing happens when you love hard and paint hard. You become one with the work. The mind can make paint do things, anything - make it behave in ways it shouldn't. The act of painting becomes spiritual. Once this happens, anything is possible."
Drew Ernst (b. 1979 OH) attended the highly respected Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, America's oldest fine arts school. During his four years there, he polished his painting skills through studying with accomplished artists including Sidney Goldman, Peter Paone and Bo Bartlett.
Zenith Gallery represents career professional living artists, many with national and international reputations, as well as new talent - some Gallery artists that were 'new talent' in 1978 are shown today in museums here and abroad. I pride myself on a keen eye and good judge of character to spot up-and-coming talents that have the potential and drive to develop successful professional careers from the passion and skill of their work.
