Variations on a Theme (Still Life and Portraiture)
January 30, 2019 - February 22, 2019
When a viewer looks at a work of art, they are bringing with them all of their life experiences, all of their unique memories, all of their knowledge and understanding they posses. Their mind interacts with the artwork as their eyes travel over the piece. This exhibit is a modern take on two traditional themes, Still Life and Portraiture and is open to all media. The magic of still life is that it can show us a new way of looking at the ordinary objects around us. Once they are placed into a specific arrangement and then captured in paint, ink, pastel, or any other medium – the objects take on a whole new meaning. In Portraiture, the intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.
