Arcadia Fine Arts was founded in 1998 with the goal of creating a showcase for contemporary, representational artwork.
The gallery is internationally known for presenting acclaimed and distinguished painters including Malcolm T. Liepke, Jeremy Lipking, Ron Hicks, Daniel Sprick and many others. In addition to featuring established painters, the gallery takes great pride in providing a launching pad for younger, emerging artists who are poised to become tomorrow's masters.
The gallery is open seven days a week and is also a prominent exhibitor at many, international art fairs. Our website: www.arcadiacontemporary.com, is frequently updated and includes a full overview of one-person and group exhibitions as well as new arrivals to the gallery's inventory.

Matthew CornellBiography of the Artist
Oil on panel
64.5" x 73"
“These have to be photographs!” is the phrase most commonly heard when collectors come in contact with a Matthew Cornell painting for the first time. Exquisitely painted, and delicately executed, Cornell’s brilliant landscapes appear to go on for miles, yet never exceed 8 inches in size. “By stripping away the fingerprints of humanity, I hope to better reveal the emotional and spiritual sense of place, and capture the transient quality of the land and sea.” This 42 year-old artist relies upon tremendous patience and the skillful use of single-hair paintbrushes to achieve his vision of purity. Ultimately, Cornell wants his representation of nature to be “imbued with a great subtlety and minimalist quality.”
