Still Life: The Art of Arrangement
Deadline: August 20, 2012
Exhibition: October 3 - 27
Opening Reception: October 5
From Dutch masters’ paintings to contemporary photography, the still life has played an important role in art history. This genre grants the artist complete control over their subjects allowing unparalleled ability to select details and manipulate the scene.
Still lifes often employ symbolism, where the objects assume their own character and identities. An entire story can be told with the arrangement of a few items. Toys, dolls, and household goods become surrogates, and natural life is given a persona. For Still Life: The Art of Arrangement The Kiernan Gallery seeks evocative and symbolic still life images.
For this exhibition juror Jason Landry will select up to 30 images for display in the main gallery and up to an additional 40 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced. All photographic media are encouraged.
