Still Life

4 March – 29 April | WPACC Foyer Gallery

 

An exhibition of still- life paintings from the Rural City of Wangaratta and Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection. Both collections have a small holding of this genre but what we lack in quantity is made up for in excellence.

Dating back to the Middle ages “Still Life” has at times, been seen as less important as, say Portrait or Landscape painting. This exhibition celebrates this genre and celebrates the artists who have taken the mundane and transformed it into something very special.
