Shelf Life by Tom Gregg : Preview Opening

Join us with IN Kansas City Magazine on Thursday, October 3rd from 5-8pm for the preview opening of Tom Gregg’s solo exhibition SHELF LIFE at The Drawing Room by Weinberger Fine Art.

Kansas City artist Tom Gregg paints fantastically realistic still lifes that pair bright color palettes with object clusters driven by metaphor and narrative. Ranging from the everyday beauty of melons and persimmons, to the romance of stemware and elegant ashtrays, to the ominous look of grenades posed in candy hued backgrounds, Gregg observes objects and their environment as a visual drama that provide him with a range of formal elements to explore and the unique ability to exert control over the scenes. 

Gregg’s interest in still life painting stems from a fascination with the simple and profound existence of objects. Objects share the world of people while remaining independent of our struggles and exertions. Objects maintain a steadfast otherness while acquiring their meaning through our physical world: they are of our world, yet in a distinct world of their own — the world of things. 

The Drawing Room is located at 1903 Wyandotte, Kansas City, MO 64108

The duration of the exhibit is open to the public Tuesday -Friday from 10am-6pm and Saturday from 12pm-5pm.
