This event has ended.

Initiated by the Dutch Masters of the 17th Century, still-lifes depict inanimate objects from the manmade or natural world, encouraging slow and steady reflection. The genre, along with landscape, was thought to be the lowest of the painting hierarchy due to the absence of human subject matter. Yet still-life endured and was adopted in various movements throughout art history, incorporating symbolic objects and depicting the innate. This exhibition presents the contemporary evolution of still lifes as artists project their own ideas onto the genre. Whether the piece is humorous, painterly, or charming, each painting included in this show can be described as a little off the grid. The artists contributing are Olga Antonova, Samuel Hung, Robert C. Jackson, Elizabeth McGhee, Janet Rickus, and Will Wilson.
