The annual Still Life Invitational has become a focal point for painters and collectors of still life. Many of the artists are trained in the classical tradition and show a wide range of expression that is composistionally fresh with subtle, thoughtful narratives. Luscious fruits, chocolates, shells and flowers abound –at first glance, these are everyday objects. Looking closer, a subtle irony can sometimes emerge, making what might seem familiar, delightfully unfamiliar, says Susan Powell, owner of the gallery.
