About the Gallery

Our annual international exhibition will be at the prestigious Winfield Gallery in the heart of the Carmel Art District. The gallery is centrally located among many quality art galleries, luxury shops and fine dining, attracting plenty of affluent visitors during the peak summer season. We couldn't have asked for a better time or location in this important U.S. art market.

Winfield Gallery was founded in 1989 by Christopher Winfield. Their principal focus is the representation of contemporary art by established, mid-career and emerging artists whose diverse practices include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and photography.

The gallery hosts multiple exhibitions a year and maintains a deep commitment to promote our artists' careers. Winfield Gallery collaborates with museum curators, produce catalogs and books, establish relationships with the press and continue collector education and development. The gallery creates an atmosphere that builds bridges between the creative work, collectors and art enthusiasts at all levels.

Carmel and Monterey are the most beautiful coastal areas of the United States. There are several sights to see such as the scenic 17-Mile Drive with views of the Pacific Ocean, Pebble Beach Golf Course, Monterey, the beautiful village of Carmel-by-the-Sea with numerous high end art galleries and so much more. Also, Carmel is about two hours away from San Francisco. If you are fortunate enough to be juried into this prestigious exhibition then we strongly recommend that you make the trip for the opening weekend festivities.


Selected Artists

The International Guild of Realism had a huge number of paintings entered, and without a doubt, the quality was excellent! Thank you, IGOR Artists for entering our 12th Annual Exhibition.

The jurors, after reviewing the images over a period of a week, made the difficult final selection. Deciding upon a limited number of paintings from an impressive array of entries wasn't an easy task, and the jurors could not resist adding more pieces to this exhibition than originally planned. Here is the final selection!

Congratulations to the selected artists of the 12th Annual International Guild of Realism Juried Exhibition!

IGOR Awards

As customary during our annual juried exhibitions, we ask the gallery to appoint a guest judge(s) to award ribbons in different categories to selected Guild Members for their outstanding artwork. All award winners will receive their ribbons by mail after the conclusion of the exhibition.


Travel Information

As usual, we will send out a Travel Guide by email a few months before the opening reception. We will truly have a fun filled three days of numerous art related activities so we encourage as many IGOR members as possible to attend these events this September in beautiful Carmel whether you have been juried in the show or not.
