Dream Worlds: The Art Imaginative Realism

-By Chris Seaman


Over the last few years I’ve been very busy, launched my own Cameo Creeps product line, did a ton of commissions and was a guest curator for a museum show. It’s been an incredible year and many firsts for my career as an illustrator. But being a guest curator? That’s high on the list of accomplishments.

Dream Worlds: the Art of Imaginative Realism showing now at the Canton Museum of Art was a work in progress for the last two years.




I’ve assembled an amazing group of contemporary Imaginative Realist painters; sculptors and craftsman that I felt best represented a swath of the current artistic movement.


I’m happy to say that the Museum Executive Director, Max Barton and his incredible staff were eager to share this work with the public, educate the masses and speak to young aspiring artists.

  2. This is an amazing show. I was there for the opening on Dec. 8th and I never ever tire of seeing the original art of my fellow creators. So many stunning pieces of art. If you have the chance, get out to this show. You won't be disappointed. Chris did an incredible job curating it.
