The PVI Art comparison study group originally began with each member choosing an artist that they liked. Since then, they have compared and contrasted various artists that they study with those original artists. The group has studied various genres. They have also studied a variety of techniques used in the pieces chosen for their studies. In their art comparison group, they have each created pieces related to their studies. This exhibit is comprised of some of those study pieces.
