Youth Art Show and Still Life Invitational at Page Gallery

What everyday objects would you choose for a painting? Would it include a favorite food, toy, flower, or book? Would your objects be carefully arranged or a random assortment strewn across a table? Would they hold meaning, make a statement or simply, be interesting shapes or beautiful colors? What stories might your objects tell? These are the questions Page Gallery is inviting children to consider in their call for still life art to adorn the gallery’s walls this winter. The exhibition will open on February 1st and will be on display through February 29th.
