Animating the Inanimate
Friday, April 21 to Saturday, May 20, 2017

The English term “Still Life” is a bit of an oxymoron. The French nail it bluntly, Nature Mort: “Dead Nature.” In any case, we all know what it is. One of its attractions is that it gives the artist opportunity to be more in control of the composition, more than many other genres. The challenge is to bring life to the “dead.”

Gallery Hours
The gallery will be open on Saturdays from Noon to 5 pm through May 20th with hours extended to 9 pm for Artwalk on May 6th.
