Still Life in Worcester

{ Wednesday, December 6th – Saturday, February 10th } Cliff Hunt presents a solo exhibition at Hanover Theater in Worcester.

Cliff Hunt made his first oil painting at 16. Almost 40 years later he returned to the arts and focused on traditional still lifes. ArtsWorcester presents Still Life in Dialogue, a solo exhibition featuring Hunt’s work at the Franklin Square Salon Gallery in the Hanover Theatre. Hunt’s technique invokes Old Master still life paintings, with luminescent fruits, vegetables, and domestic objects in casual disarray on humble tables. Hunt’s paintings have more personality than their artistic forebears, however. A clique of olives rejects a silver dish that seeks their company; an onion fights with its lurid backdrop; a gang of peaches rot together. A quiet humor informs the confident, masterly paintings. Hunt is mainly concerned with “efforts to bring to a patron a lifetime of enjoyment with an aesthetically pleasing work of art adorning their home.” “With that,” he says, “I will have accomplished a worthy endeavor.”

An opening reception for Still Life in Dialogue is scheduled for Wednesday, December 6th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. After the opening, viewings are by appointment (also free) through February 10th. Appointments can be made by email or by phone at 508-755-5142. Parking for the opening and viewing appointments is available in the Federal Square lot, across Main Street from the Hanover Theatre.
