by News Bureau on Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2012

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., April 17, 2012 – “Zeuxis: Reflections,” an exhibition of still life paintings, will be displayed beginning May 1 in the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

The public is invited to attend an opening reception from 4-8 p.m. on May 4. The exhibit will remain on display through June 30. Admission is free.

For their latest exhibition titled Reflections, Zeuxis artists and their guests have agreed to produce still life incorporating a reflecting object. The nature of reflection – its surface (likely a mirror, though possibly glass or silverware) and the image reflected (still life objects, a window, or even a self portrait) – was determined by each individual artist.

Zeuxis is a grassroots organization of painters formed in 1995 to explore the contemporary possibilities of still life. Guests artists include Lois Dodd, John Dubrow, Al Kresch, Marion Lerner-Levine, George Nick, and Susan Jane Walp.

The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus, 518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Museum hours: Tues.-Fri.: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekends: 1-4 p.m. For more information, call (573) 651-2260.
