Justin Gaffery invites you to “LIFE STILL,” an opening reception for his new collection of paintings on Wednesday, May 22 from 6 - 9pm at the Justin Gaffrey Gallery. Please join us for complimentary drinks and appetizers. Beer will be provided by Props Craft Brewery.

A drawing will be held for a 16 x 20 Hand Painted Artist Edition of a new artwork. Tickets for the drawing are $20, and all proceeds will benefit Food For Thought Outreach Inc. Tickets can be purchased at the gallery from May 2nd to May 22. Winner will be announced at 8pm.

This exhibition began as a study of traditional still life paintings, inspired by artists like Henri Matisse and Leonardo da Vinci. Gaffrey researched and studied various works in order to better understand the true meaning of still life and the thought process these great artists went through in order to produce such great works.

“As I explored the work more in-depth, simultaneously my observation of the world outside of the studio was feeling upside down,” Gaffrey said. “I also became bored with some of the traditional aspects of the inanimate still life.”

These feelings evolved into “LIFE STILL,” bringing the conventional still life into movement, while also painting some of the elements of the traditional still life arrangement. 

Those in attendance will have the unique opportunity to purchase new works from the collection and several different limited-edition, archival prints from the "LIFE STILL" collection.
