The art of Rita Romero is a celebration of the renaissance of classical realism and the dramatic power of representational art. She doesn’t aspire to simply paint realistically, but rather to capture a moment, a human experience or an emotional dialogue with the viewer that transcends culture, time and reality itself. Her work has been exhibited in many art shows, galleries and museums including the Triton Museum, Haggin Museum, the Edith Lambert Gallery and M.K. Sloan Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, and the Salmagundi Art Club in New York.

“The realist, if he is an artist, will not show us a mere photograph of life, but give us a vision more complete – more probing than reality itself.” – Guy De Maupassant
