The Unstilllife: A Celebration of the Eccentric
Possibilities of Still Life
November 4, 2016 - January 14, 2017
Can a still life be a face or even a body? Can a basket of fruit suggest a hillside? Does a single stick of chalk constitute a still life? And does a still life always have to be set upon a table? "The Unstilllife" celebrates the eccentric possibilities of still life and is a collection of works by Zeuxis, an association of still life painters that has presented group shows in New York City and around the United States since 1995. Painter Trevor Winkfield, who shows at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York and whose highly regarded work as an art writer includes co-founding the journal The Sienese Shredder, is collaborating with Zeuxis to organize the exhibition. An opening reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 4, and the exhibition will continue through Jan. 14.
