Artist Call Detail

For International artists

THE STILLED LIFE: A Group Show. The exhibition will be held July 20th – August 25th in our gallery premises in New York, USA, located in 529 W 20th Chelsea.

When looking at old Dutch and German still life masters, objects have always served to convey a meaning. Some objects have a universal meaning that has remained unchanged until today; while others have developed recently or have altered their symbolic message. These changes are very much dependent on the context, environmental and social influences and other objects around it.

This exhibition explores how a still life artwork – regardless of medium or genre – can tell a complex story. How objects are placed, the composition of the work, combined with the literal and metaphorical symbolic meanings enable an enriching experience for the viewer.

Artists working in any medium are invited to apply for this upcoming exhibition, to be held at ARTE PONTE New York gallery premises in Chelsea.

Open to all media: painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture.
