Still Life / Life Still by Lisa WB Walker

Still Life / Life Still

by lisawbwalker
A special exhibition hosted at the Dedham Community Theatre by the Dedham Square Artist Guild opens tonight in Dedham Square.  The exhibit features work by Guild members, local artists, teachers and students who responded to the artist challenge: Still Life / Life Still.  Tonight's opening reception (THURSDAY, MAY 5th 6-8 PM) will include  refreshments; artists will be on hand to meet and discuss their work.
Still Life / Life Still
Explore still life in a traditional approach by studying objects arranged in a balanced composition; or, where objects are caught in their natural surroundings and documented. Show us how you see still life / life still.

Still Life of Peppers. Handmade objects to be arranged in a pleasing composition. My peppers began as pinch pots with coils.

This exhibition will be up through the end of June. All artwork is for sale through the Dedham Square Artist Guild, including my one of a kind set of hand sculpted peppers.

This painting by Guild member Matt Miller is also in the show.  Perhaps I was influenced? This happens when you surround yourself with beautiful art by talented friends :)
