Still Point Art Gallery Opens "Still Life: Ordinary and Extraordinary"

I am very pleased to announce the opening of Still Point Art Gallery's online exhibition, Still Life: Ordinary and Extraordinary.

A still life. A vase filled with flowers, an apple or pear, some books, feathers, a teapot, candles. Maybe a stuffed bird. Inanimate objects. A bottle of perfume, a cell phone, a water bottle, children's toys. Maybe even cheap sunglasses or fake diamonds. The inanimate objects of our lives...the ordinary and the extraordinary objects of our lives...to honor, to preserve...to hold still...to remember, to venerate.

B. Andrew Valliere. Mums.

This is a beautiful show...one to cherish. Many of the images are of ordinary objects that we all see and touch in our day-to-day living. All of the images are extraordinary expressions of honor, remembrance, reverence, and gratitude. A show to enjoy slowly. A show during which to experience the power of objects. 

Artists of Distinction for this exhibition are Linda Pearlman Karlsberg, Marko Susla, and Ranjini Venkatachari. Enjoy their remarkable work in the Gallery and come back soon to read about them and their art in our blog. These artists will have the opportunity to show more of their art as Gallery Artists beginning in April 2011.
