The Art Center is pleased to present its first-ever still life invitational, “Everyday Inspiration,” opening on May 14. The exhibit features the artwork of 34 Lane County artists ranging from established to emerging artists and includes over 120 individual artworks in the genre of still life.

Mediums include drawings in charcoal, graphite, and pastels, photography, oil, acrylic, gouache, and watercolor paintings, linocut reduction prints, and textile work. The subjects range from those traditionally associated with still life, such as flowers and fruit, to uncommon objects like a pierced pickle on a fork and broken glassware with a conch shell, to modern stylized forms.

For the exhibit, Kate Bollons, Sarah Ciampa, Carolyn Gates, Gabriella Soraci, and Jordan K. Walker present three-dimensional examples of still life set ups that function as installation sculptures. Each uses particular items in their installations that reflect their own signature styles. All five artists are current or past art instructors as well as Lane County artists.

A virtual Artist Talk in conjunction with “Everyday Inspiration” will be held via Zoom on Thursday, May 20, from 6 – 7 pm. The talk includes moderator Sarah Ciampa and artists Lisa Livoni, Gabriella Soraci, and Jordan K. Walker, all artists who work primarily in still life or for whom still life plays a significant role in their body of work. To attend, please contact the Art Center and request that a Zoom link be emailed to you.
