Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and out of concern for everyone's health, we have moved this show to June.

If we are still unable to hold it in June we will move the show to December thru early January.  In that case we will give entrants a choice of the following:
  1. Participate in the backup month of December
  2. A free entry to another 2020 show at 311 Art Gallery
  3. A refund

According to the Tate Modern, still life is all kinds of man-made or natural objects, cut flowers, fruit, vegetables, fish, game, wine and so on.  Still life can be a celebration of material pleasures such as food and wine, or often a warning of the ephemerality of these pleasures and of the brevity of human life.

We welcome your own take on still life from the classic definition to a color-outside-the-lines interpretation.
