Still Point Art Gallery Opens Still Point II - April 7 - June 8, 2010

Still Point Art Gallery opens its second annual exhibition focused on exploring those things that artists, through art, hold still - Still Point II. The online exhibition will be a featured show through June 8, 2010.
One way of thinking about visual art is that the artist finds or discovers something - be it inside or outside of the artist - and, through art, holds it still. A photographer captures a moment in time with a click of the shutter and that moment is locked in stillness. A painter paints a scene using oils on canvas and that scene exists forever in a motionless state. A sculptor molds and shapes details of a human body, and that body stands frozen...never to age...never to change.
