Current Exhibit: Rhythms of Still Life
May 15 - August 15, 2014
Curated by Joan Blackmer
Still life painting as a genre has provided a platform for artists as far back as the Egyptians to explore their relationship with the world of objects that surround us. In the quiet and contemplative environment of their studios, artists create wonderful moments in time. Still life painting is as diverse as its long history. Some artists take a traditional approach and explore the great beauty of the humble objects around us, while others use it as a vehicle to explore new artistic possibilities or to convey political or social meaning. In Rhythms of Still Life, twenty local artists, all members of the Santa Cruz Oil Painters, (SCOP), have captured the beauty, vibrancy, and diversity that is still life painting.
This is a special celebratory exhibit. It marks the 10th anniversary of the Santa Cruz County Arts Collaborative. Additionally, artists are partnering with the Symphony League of Santa Cruz County in support of our local Santa Cruz Symphony. A portion of proceeds from all sales at the opening reception (only) will be donated to the Symphony League.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 12, 2014 from 5-7 pm at Santa Cruz County Bank, 720 Front Street, Santa Cruz. Meet the artists of the show, view the art and mingle with your fellow community members. The event is free and the public is welcomed to attend.
