On Sunday, August 8, 2010 from 2PM to 4PM an Opening Reception will be held for the August Exhibits: Language in Art - Guild Group Show and Director's Choice: Kirill Doron. Language in Art: Artists are increasingly engaged in conversation with their viewers. Lecturing them, persuading them, cajoling. Trying to convince them to see the world as they see it themselves, or perhaps, as they would wish their admirers would see it. This juried Guild Group show will showcase the range of directions in which artists incorporate language into their art and seek to engage the viewer into this dialogue. Juried by Liza Statton, Interim Director, Artspace, New Haven and Jeffrey Mueller, Gallery Director, Silvermine Guild Arts Center. Director's Choice: Kirill Doron--An exhibit showcasing the artist's still life paintings that are of simple objects demonstrating his connection with trompe-l'oeil, a technique that dates back to the Renaissance. A French term literally meaning "trick the eye," Mr. Doron's paintings, rendered in extremely realistic detail, give the appearance of being three-dimensional. Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 12Noon to 5PM--Sunday 1PM to 5PM.
