4 summer exhibitions with Park West artists
Now that summer vacations are officially here, it’s a perfect time to soak up some sun as well as some culture by exploring the art of old masters and contemporary artists.
To help you get started, we’ve selected a variety of exhibitions around the U.S. to whet your appetite for art. Three of the shows feature art where Park West has been a dealer for the works of the artists, while the fourth celebrates the art of Detroit at Park West Gallery’s Southfield location.
Discovering the Impressionists: Paul Durand-Ruel and the New Painting – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Philadelphia Museum of Art
Dates: June 24 – September 13
Admission: $25, $23 for seniors, $20 for students and youth, $12 ages 5-12.
Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel inherited a gallery founded by his parents, and along the way, discovered a group of artists that would become the Impressionists. The exhibition explores how Durand-Ruel secured a place for Impressionism in art history, and features works from artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro.
The exhibition is a reminder of the setbacks and breakthroughs experienced by these artists, many of whom have inspired contemporary artists such as Marko Mavrovich.

Park West Gallery is bringing the heart and soul of the Motor City’s art scene into the spotlight with a three-part exhibition featuring Detroit artists.

The series finishes with the evolutionary art of Dominic Pangborn, whose works blend eastern and western philosophies.
Each artist will present unique works as well as giclees, all of which are available to collect.
