Edmond Praybe - Still Life: More than Nature Morte (Online); Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - Free!

Date: Wednesday, September 29, 2021
Time: 10:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time/1:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time/6:00-7:00 PM London Time

Join Edmond Praybe for a slide talk and discussion focusing on artists that have taken the still life beyond the traditional expectations of the genre. This presentation will consider painters that expand our conception of the still life motif with unconventional subjects, exciting modes of approach or a poetic sensitivity. We will investigate both contemporary and art historical works. An opportunity for  Q & A and open discussion will follow the talk.


Edmond Praybe is a painter concerned with the convergence of perception and abstraction. His work pairs intense direct observation of the motif with abstractions of structure, rhythm, shape and color. He received his BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art and MFA from the New York Studio School. Edmond’s work has been shown widely at juried and invitational exhibitions. He has been the recipient of the Hohenberg Travel Grant, two Mercedes Matter Awards  and was a National Parks Artist-In-Residence at Catoctin Mountain Park. Edmond teaches studio classes and lectures regularly in-person and online. He is a member of Zeuxis: an association of still life painters and is currently represented by Y Art in Baltimore, First Street Gallery in New York City and Peterson Contemporary in Bend, OR.
