The Object Seen: Contemporary Still Life

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION:

The Object Seen – Contemporary Still Life is a celebration of one of art history’s oldest traditions – the study and practice of the still life as subject matter.  This exhibition honors both traditional realism as well as more experimental contemporary techniques and welcomes a variety of media.

JURY CRITERIA:

The juror will be asked to select work (both two and three dimensional) that reflects and expresses the theme of Contemporary Still Life while demonstrating creativity, strength of execution, and overall artistic excellence with the goal of selecting a well-rounded exhibit that showcases a broad range of artistic styles and interpretation.  

 

ABOUT THE JUROR:  

Sheldon Tapley is the Stodghill Professor of Art at Centre College, where he has taught painting and drawing throughout his career. His works have been exhibited and collected at public institutions across the country.

“Tapley masterfully blends the discipline of a hard-earned classical technique with a vision that is thoroughly modern and personal,” wrote Bill Creevy in American Artist. Kentucky Educational Television featured the artist in the documentary series Looking at Painting and an episode of Kentucky Life. The New Yorker introduced Tapley’s art to a national audience in a review of his first solo exhibition of still life paintings at the Tatistcheff Gallery.
