EXHIBITION THUMBNAILS

FOCUS: Fish and Dish – A Fresh Take on Still Life

Juror Jason Andrew takes a non-traditional look at this very traditional form by selecting contemporary work, across all genres, to stand in conversation with a painting pulled directly from WAAM’s Permanent Collection. De Hirsch Margules’ vibrant Still Life painting will be centrally hung in our Main Gallery and provide a springboard for a fresh look at the age-old genre so historically popular across movements, cultures, and periods. With a respectful nod to the past, Mr. Andrew will select work that expands upon, toys with, or stretches the idea of what makes a still life, a still life.
