The Rockaway Artists Alliance is certainly not standing still as they shake off the grays of winter to present another successful exhibition. Showcased in the inviting sTudio 6 Gallery at Fort Tilden, “The Life of Still Objects” draws together the work of ten talented artists in RAA’s second show of the year. Through photography, painting and even quilt, the exhibition explores the motion and emotion shimmering just below the surface of everyday objects and places.

The “Life of Still Objects” will run through Sunday, March 27. For the exhibition the artists have used their imagination and skill to conjure up new interpretations of the ‘still life’ using inventive angles, subjects, juxtapositions and contexts. Such intriguing titles as “A Trinity of Ties in Paris,” “Flight,” “The Wood Shop,” “Hot Peppers,” “Half Empty,” “Blue Teapot,” “Riis Towers,” “Beach,” appropriately “Still Life II,” and “Modern Onions in Early 17th C. Japanese Oribe Bowl” bring to life a world full of objects we feel like we are seeing for the first time. It is a world to which the Rockaway Artists Alliance invites all to come and experience for themselves.

“The Life of Still Objects” artists include Sydell Rothefel, Stephanie Schmidt, Ralph Petagna, Maryann McEvoy, Audrey Irwin, Mary Meade, Jessica Schulman, Susan DeCastro, Dan Guarino and Joseph Abbate.

Gallery hours are from 12-4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday and by appointment. Admission to the gallery and all events are free, as is parking.
