Still Life Lives! is a group exhibition that celebrates the vitality of the still life tradition and its themes of beauty, bounty, darkness, fragility, and fleeting moments. Still Life Lives! features paintings from FAM’s permanent collection – gorgeous florals and fruits by Nell Blaine, Marc Chagall, Henri Fantin-Latour, William Harnett, Walt Kuhn, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Marguerite Zorach, to name a few – surrounded by striking examples of the genre by over twenty contemporary New England artists. Still Life Lives! and its programs are funded in part by the Elsi D. Simonds Lecture Fund.
