Staged considers the still life as subject matter, pushing the meaning and history of the popular form of artistic expression. The still life has been embraced as an illustration of wealth and grandeur, cultural and scientific advancement, and morality as well as a study in composition, form, and color configuration. Photographers John Chervinsky and Cynthia Greig and painters Nancy Hill and Kathleen Volp scrutinize the still life in their work, transforming the genre and challenging its many associations. Staged will be featured at Clark Gallery from June 4 through July 19, 2008. All are invited to join the artists for an opening reception on Saturday, June 7th from 4-6pm.
