Co-curated by Bo Bartlett and Betsy Eby, Peers & Influences represents a handful of artists who have been significant within their circle of friendships as either mentors, teachers, friends or contemporaries of Bartlett. This body of work represents various approaches to both the human form and nature through three generations of artists ranging from Raphael and Moses Soyer, born 1899 to Jordan Sokol, born 1979.
