"Reflections" --Works by Zeuxis, an association of still life painters. Exhibit is open through April 19. Zeuxis is a grassroots organization of painters formed in 1995 to explore the contemporary possibilities of still life. For their latest exhibition titled "Reflections," Zeuxis artists and their guests have agreed to produce still lives incorporating a reflecting object. The nature of reflection – its surface (likely a mirror, though possibly glass or silverware) and the image reflected (still life objects, a window, or even a self portrait) – is interpreted by each individual artist.
The Zeuxis "Reflections" exhibit is made possible through a generous grant from The Richard C. von Hess Foundation.
Admission is always free and open to the public. The Main Gallery is handicapped accessible.Details at pcad.edu/maingallery
Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Closed Sundays and holidays; Open on First Fridays until 9 p.m. For more details go to pcad.edu/maingallery
