“The Art of the Still Life” opens at Haynes Galleries

Yin Yong Chun, “Red Lucky”

Haynes Galleries in Thomaston is pleased to present “The Art of the Still Life,” a wide-ranging exhibit featuring the work of 20 contemporary artists. There will be an Opening Reception Friday, Sept. 2, from 5-8 pm and will be on view through Sept. 29 .

What could possibly be exciting about a bowl of eggs? A bouquet? A lemon peel? In the hands of these contemporary masters, quite a bit. While the genre is as old as paint itself, this exhibit of watercolors and oils puts the “life” in still life.
