Call for Artists YSAC "It's Still Life"

Call for Artists
“It's Still Life”
The Members Show
February 19th-March 13th

“Essentially, the subject matter of a still life painting or sculpture is anything that does not move or is dead.” 
Quote from the Tate

An art of imitation?
A new way of seeing the ordinary objects that surround us?
When creating a still life, the important question to ask is, "What does it mean?"
Modern still life often breaks the two-dimensional barrier
and employs three-dimensional mixed media, and uses found objects, photography, computer graphics, as well as video and sound.”
 Work in any medium. 

The first artwork submission is free to members!  There is a $10.00 entry fee for a second piece.
Work may be NFS or priced for sale (a 25% commission goes to YSAC on each sale)
