Join us for a reception with artists from the exhibition The Close Observation of Inanimate Objects.
Still life as an artistic genre is defined as a painting or drawing of an arrangement of mostly inanimate objects, both natural and man-made. This tradition has been present in art history throughout time, from all parts of the globe. Artists today borrow from this history, and using new materials and contemporary concepts, they provide a fresh look at an old tradition. In the gallery, visitors will have the opportunity to closely observe objects and artworks and draw what they see.
Artists in this exhibition include: Rachel Bess, Alexandra Bowers, Kate Breakey, Stephen Buxton, Elizabeth Cheche, Anne Coe, Matt Dickson, Suzanne Falk, Sherry Leedy, William LeGoullon, Carrie Marill, Ellen Murray, Anthony Pessler, and Barbara Rogers.
Free and open to the public
At the Center Space (formerly the Young@Art Gallery), located in Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
