The Vanity Of Earthly Achievements Artists from the West Coast revisit the historical tradition of the Still Life. Curated by Griff Williams Opening Reception: 6.14.18 / 6:00 - 8:00 pm Artist include Griff Williams, Tucker Nichols, Jonn Herschend, Libby Black, Alice Shaw, Richard Shaw, Rex Ray, David Hytone and Hilary Pecis The artists assembled for this exhibition are connected through San Francisco’s Gallery 16, a gallery founded by artist Griff Williams, now in it’s 25th year. Williams recently noted a resurgence of contemporary artists revisiting the still life. Today, the Still Life or Vanitas genre may seem hackneyed, but the artists in this exhibition imbue the banal form with renewed meaning and use it to pose new questions.
