Spy Minute: RiverArts February Show Makes It Real


In our most recent Spy Minute: Anne Highfield-Clark, the curator of the RiverArts Gallery show in February entitled “Variations on a Theme (Still Life and Portraiture)” shares a few thoughts with us on highlights the show.

Her goal is to show that the magic of still life can show one a new way of looking at the ordinary objects around us. Once they are placed into a specific arrangement and then captured in paint, ink, pastel, or any other medium – these objects take on a whole new meaning. In portraiture, the intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.
