The Durham Art Guild presents "Sitting Still" featuring paintings contemplating Chairs as Still Life by DAG member artist Kristin Gibson. Suggestions of chairs have made their way into many of Gibson's paintings. A tribute of sorts to those who have sat there or shared around the table. A percentage of proceeds from exhibition sales will benefit Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake.
This exhibition will be on view at Room 100 Gallery at Golden Belt January 9 - February 5, 2018. Join us for a 3rd Friday public reception with the artist January 19 from 6-9pm.

"Still life, happening upon and composing elements of daily life has been where I have found my painting voice. Flowers found on a walk, vegetables fresh picked at the market, a chair with books, a corner of a room. Chairs in particular made their way into my work in response to seasons of significant loss and change. Three years ago another life change brought my family to Durham. Many nights spent at the Ronald McDonald House in Durham with daily walks in Duke Gardens became my solace. This collection of works speaks to gratefulness, hope, reflection and coming out the other side. Thank you for visiting Room 100 and sharing a moment “Sitting Still”.
