Opening reception on Friday, May 11th from 7-9pm.
Over 50 4x4 inch paintings of beautifully rendered skulls by Noah Scalin, created as way to honor the 5th year (June 4, 2011 – June 3, 2012) of his popular Skull-A-Day project.
“All Is Vanity” comes from the Biblical phrase “Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas” translated as “Vanity of vanities; all is vanity” in the King James Bible. The phrase is also the source of the term vanitas, which is generally applied to traditional still life paintings, most commonly from Northern Europe in the 16th & 17th centuries, that focused on the brevity of life and frequently featured images of skulls.
Beginning May 4th and on display through July 31st at Clippi Headren, 929 Meyers St., which is parallel to Boulevard and just north of Broad St. in the old Woody’s Auto Service building.
Hours are Tuesdays & Fridays 10-5
