The summer fun continues in Middletown. If you are looking for something to do to get out of the house and be active in your community this week, take a look at these options!
The Middletown Arts Center will host an exhibition all week exploring contemporary still-life entitled, “Still Alive.” Organized by Cincinnati-based independent curator Maria Seda-Reeder, the show will feature the work of more than a dozen artists working in various disciplines. The M.A.C. will hold an opening reception for “Still Alive” on July 23rd from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. and there will be gallery talks and workshops by participating artists throughout the run of the show, which closes August 18th.
“Still Alive” aims to demonstrate some of the ways in which living artists continue to investigate the genre of still-life today.
John Auer, Amanda Bialk, Arynn Blazer, Patricia Duque Campos (Una Floral), Joe Castrucci, Sara Caswell-Pearce (Paper With a Past), Colin Klimesh, Pam Kravetz, Katie Parker & Guy Michael Davis (Future Retrieval), Brooke Shanesy, Mica Smith, Megan Strasser (Fern), and Christy Wittmer.
