Special Opening Reception: “Natura Morta”

by Darryl Halbrooks

This month we have a special, early opening reception!

“Natura Morta” by Darryl Halbrooks will open Thursday, December 7 at 6:30 pm.

Natura morta, Italian for “still life,” is also a reference to Italian painter Giorgio Morandi, known for his subdued arrangements of vessels and the like. In Halbrooks’s, you’ll find more color and movement.

The other difference? Halbrooks’s still lifes are hidden under undulating cloth, leaving the viewer to only guess at what’s underneath. Of course, the drapery is a delight in its own right.
