Final Week for Still Point I

This is the final week for Still Point I. After this week, images in this exhibition will move to another location on our website; they will still be available for viewing and will still be for sale, but the show will no longer be featured.

During the past several weeks, I've written about many of the images in the show and how they relate to the theme of this show...the theme being: those things that artists choose, through their art, to hold still. In the show, there are landscapes, portraits, still life pieces, and abstracts. There are pieces in which fast action is made to stand still and pieces in which stillness is part of the subject being painted.

With the obvious exceptions of "moving pictures" and theater, most visual art involves holding something still...be it a representational object or a non-representational thought or idea. That is the nature of creating art. But I'm not sure that artists think of their art in this way very often. I hope that this show created the opportunity to think, for a moment, about art in this way - as a way of holding something still...creating stillness. One can never have too many ways to think about something...to think about art. It generates yet another way to be inspired.

Thank you to all the Still Point I artists! Thank you to everyone who viewed and enjoyed the art!
