Still Life Interpretations at Jorgenson Gallery
The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery at Moberly Area Community College will host a free, public reception for its current exhibit on Thursday, October 8 from 5 - 7pm.
The exhibit, entitled Still Lifes: Perceptions of Inanimate Objects, will be on display from October 1 through November 12, 2015. The show is made up of still life pieces based on individual artists' interpretation of the traditional concept. Still life artwork features common every-day items, such as food, plants or household items in an inanimate, or non-moving, state. The style appears in cultures from early Egyptian and Greek frescoes to the Renascence and into modern works. The artists included in this event explore the genre in various forms including photographic prints, oil on canvas, fabric and thread, and mixed media.
The curated show includes the following national and international artists: Laura Aish, Pamela Delaura, Joseph Holsapple, Steven Hughes, Christina Kerns, Ellen Starr Lyon, Sarah Malakoff, Katrina Majkut, Ann Mansolino, Matthew McLaughlin, Emily Newman, Chee Wang Ng, Melodie Provenzano, Susan Sidebottom, Robert Thurlow, Susan P. Tolbert, Randall Tosh, Radek Vizina, and Tom Wagner.
The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery, named in honor of MACC President Emeritus Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgeson, was created as part of the remodel of the historic MACC Coliseum in 2002. The area provides an updated and expanded space for Graphic Arts & Fine Arts programs, including lab space, classrooms, and studios. The Gallery houses rotating exhibits throughout the year featuring the work of national and international artists as well as local high school and MACC student work. The Gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7AM to 8:30PM and on Friday from 7AM to 4PM.
