Tipping Paint Gallery is sponsoring a juried exhibition of contemporary still life entitled Flowers & $#!+. The exhibition will open First Friday, February 1, 2013 with a reception from 6:00pm – 9:30pm and run through February 24th.

Often considered a lowly art form, it has been with us since early Greek and Roman times. As time and styles have progressed and changed, art movements have addressed this genre in their own unique manner. Read more about the history of Still Lifes in Lee Ball’s blog post.
