The Art of Still Life, 2nd Bi-Annual Exhibit will be held this January 2020 at the 3 Square Art Gallery! Artist through the ages have be interested in depicting innate objects to convey religious themes, familiar surroundings, educational programs, and benchmark the skill of the artist. Common items portrayed by Still Life Artists of the past include everyday objects such as fruit, flowers, coins, food items, wine glasses, and dinnerware. Modern Still Life Artists have experimented with different ways to visualize and portray these objects and with abstraction, some have even completely deconstructed the physical shapes of the objects.
In our object and material rich society, there are many items for use by the artist for a Still Life. What items will you use and how will you arrange them? What is your take on the Still Life?
We are looking for all types of works--painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and more--works that show off your ability and creativity with the Still Life. Will you stick with the classical approach to the still life and familiar objects or will you completely flip the Still Life on its head to show a new way to view the objects you are using. How will you use the objects of our modern times for your Still Life piece? The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork and use of fresh new objects.
