Robert O’Connor – “Still” Sep 10 – Oct 28

Should art still be made in light of all the terrible events around the globe? ¬†Is it relevant and meaningful? ¬†Artist Robert O’Connor uses the image of a still life to explore this question and the role of art in an ever more complicated and chaotic world.

“Crime fills the world, so absolutely that we could go insane out of sheer despair… I just want to go on record that I perceive our only hope – or our one great hope – as residing in art.” – Gerhard Richter

Opening reception Saturday, September 10th 5-7pm
