One of the most effective and widely used educational tools for artists is practicing still life which is defined as creating art depicting a subject that is inanimate or dead. Most artists are exposed to this practice frequently in order to help hone their skills while others consider it their preferred subject matter. In either case exploring the art of still life is essential in an artist’s development of skill and style.

“Embracing Stillness” is an education-inspired exhibition that is bound to result in a prolific array of artworks from creators of varying skill levels. This is an open call exhibition inviting artists of all walks of life to produce art inspired by this subject. In addition prior to the submission deadline we will host a class where artists will be invited to come and work from a still life installation built in a common space at SBDAC. The class would involve a guided session of independent drawing or painting from the provided installation for a generous allotment of time with a local established artist acting as a guide to assist or answer questions. Artists will have the option to submit the resulting artworks for inclusion in this exhibition. The class is not mandatory for participation in the show.

By hosting a juried exhibition with an emphasis on a basic subject such as still life we can encourage both emerging and established artists to go beyond their comfort zones and learn something new in the process. Submissions will be judged based on technique and creativity as well as a grasp of the subject of ‘still life’ and this call is open to all traditional mediums (painting drawing etc.).
