Exhibition - Close at Hand: Contemporary Still Life

Exhibition - Close at Hand: Contemporary Still Life

Wednesday, Aug 21, 2019 from 10:00am to 6:00pm


Over the centuries, artists have answered the question of what to paint or draw by creating still life compositions. There is a good reason for this: still life objects do not move, and they are often close at hand in an artist’s studio. This exhibition focuses on contemporary still life prints from the McNay’s collection. One of the highlights is a recently acquired series of working proofs for Katja Oxman’s Evening Softly Lit.

Lead funding is most generously provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Exhibition Endowment and the Arthur and Jane Stieren Fund for Exhibitions.
