From Arts Council Coordinator Patty Payne: "Still life art evokes meditation. It is sometimes a challenge to determine what was the artist thinking when the scene was put to the canvas! ... Think of all of the objects around you, why do you keep them? Perhaps for their color (think of pottery), their age (think of an old pair of Aunt Annie's gloves), or their memories (think of the homerun baseball). Still life art provides a bridge to our memories. Artists will bring life to still life art through lights and darks and create the mood they wish to evoke for the viewer. Light is unbelievably complicated to portray and artists spend endless hours perfecting the skill! Sometimes, the object of the art is not in the object at all, but in the reflections, or what is behind the art."

This event is presented by the Town of Pike Road Arts Council. For more information about the Arts Council, or to schedule an appointment to visit the Pike Road Arts Center outside of open hours, please contact Pike Road Arts Council Coordinator Patty Payne by emailing patty@pikeroad.us.
