Still Life with Life:
This exhibit embraces the ‘life’ in still life paintings by artists working today. A still life painting by definition is composed of objects that are not alive. However, artists through the ages have stretched the boundaries of this definition. The Dutch Old Masters added small insects, or butterflies to their floral still lifes. Trompe l’Oeil painters make every effort to create a work of art so life-like you will be fooled into thinking you are looking at the real thing.  The Impressionists use color and light to breathe life into their still lifes, and now take them outdoors to add natural light, ‘more life’ to their paintings...

Still life paintings date back to ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman times and have survived and evolved through many centuries of changes in art styles and art materials. Still Life is traditionally taught in art workshops, art academies and universities, often used as a tool to teach composition and design as well as the skill of painting believable 3-dimensional objects. 

Over fifteen painters representing many classic styles will exhibit their recent works. Styles will include Dutch Old Master, Tonalists, Romantics, Impressionists and Trompe l’Oeil. These styles, with other variations and combinations of styles will be on view as the artists express their creativity and vision.
