RICHLAND, Wash. – A fresh interpretation of a classic art form, the still life, opened Sept. 5 and will run through Sept.30, at Washington State University Tri-Cities.
“Life Interpreted: A Still Life Art Show” features more than 20 pieces created by a dozen Tri-City artists and graphic designers. Those showing include Laura Gable, Kim Dallaire, Heather Willoughby and Kristin De La Rosa.

The exhibit is in the Art Center, inside the Consolidated Information Center, 2770 Crimson Way, Richland.

Artists were challenged to create a unique take on the still life genre, which commonly uses items such as food, flowers and plants, feathers, rocks and stones, shells, skulls and bones, books, vases, glassware, jewelry, coins, tools and toys.
“Life Interpreted” is on display through Sept. 30. The Art Center’s regular hours are 12-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Admission to the opening reception and the exhibit is free and open to the public.
