Miller Gallery kicks off its 53rd season with its second biennial Contemporary Realism Invitational, featuring paintings by artists from around the globe. 

Realism preceded 20th century Modernism, which shook up the art world with ideas like Cubism, Expressionism and other avant-garde movements. Curated by Miller Gallery Director Rosemary Seidner, the exhibition will feature new works by 27 artists who are interested in a return to realistic painting that is “not traditional, but refined to the highest level and inspired by the greatest artists of the past.” 

Opening reception: 6-9 p.m. Friday. Gallery hours 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. Through Oct. 19. 2715 Erie Ave., Hyde Park, 513-871-4420, millergallery.com.
