A well-known still life tradition of the 17th-century Dutch masters, vanitas uses symbolism as a reminder of death’s inevitability. In contrast, the artists of “Vanitas: Contemporary Florals” reinvent this tradition through an optimistic lens, allowing the beauty of a blossom and the hope of Spring’s rebirth to act as symbols of life’s resilience. We invite you to join us as we celebrate this promise of new life.
This event will be held both in-person and online. We invite you to join us for an opening reception in conjunction with Gallery Night MKE.
Featured artists: Michael Lynn Adams, Jaqueline Kamin, Hagop Keledjian, Jean Lightman, Yana Movchan, Christopher Pierce, John C. Traynor
