Still Life: Past, Present, Future – Call for Artists

Posted by on June 17, 2016

uBe Art announces a call for artists for Still Life: Past, Present, Future.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 5 Aug 2016

Artists have broadened the traditionally narrow definition of still life painting through the use of new media and new subject matter. They have extended the genre beyond the fruit-and-flower paintings, making art of commercially available items such as Claes Oldenburg’s Tea Bag, Jim Dine’s Bathrobe, Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, or Larry Rivers’ Cigar Box since the 1960s.

uBe Art wants to share the vast scope of still life art – from the traditional table setting to images reflective of current culture and everything in between.

Artist will retain 60% of sales.

Artwork selected for the Still Life: Past, Present, Future show will be on display in a seven week exhibition at uBe Art in the B-Side Hood of Berkeley, California—located just 12 miles east of San Francisco. The gallery is a beautiful, light filled space with 25 ft ceilings attracting artists, visitors, and collectors from around the Bay Area.

Still Life: Past, Present, Future

 

uBe Art was conceived with an emphasis on accessibly priced, emerging art designed to build relationships with a broad clientele.

In a culture where traditional galleries tend to intimidate art newbies, uBe Art dissolves that gap bringing art and people of all walks and ages together in a space that encourages all to engage with, get cozy with, create, and appreciate art.

Delivering rotating exhibitions, creative workshops for all ages, and expert led home transformation workshops, uBe Art is hitting all the marks and growing to encompass more.

Perfectly nestled in the busting B-Side Hood of Berkeley, uBe Art is surrounded by a cluster of shops and restaurants with live music and events making the block a great destination spot!
