GAGE | Faigin Still Life Atelier

“The Water Cycle,” 30″x40″, oil on canvas, 2016

Since the Renaissance, ambitious young artists have sought to apprentice under master artists in their studios. The word “atelier” means studio in French and, at Gage, following this same tradition, well-known professional artists offer concentrated study in year-long sessions to selected cohorts of dedicated art students.

Gary Faigin teaches one of the six ateliers at Gage, leading a part-time studio program with a small group of painting students interested in exploring concept, composition, color, spatial effects and the perfection of their own individual style through the study of still-life arrangements. For painters, no other subject matter offers the artist quite as much control over every aspect of their pictorial effect, and none has as rich and interesting a history.

From September thru mid-June, the Faigin atelier students work independently in their own studio spaces with Faigin attending twice a week to present lectures and demonstrations, as well as work privately with each individual student. Field trips and student presentations of selected artists are also included in the program format. To learn more, please go here.


“Still-lifes, the center of my studio practice: fruit as a stand-in for the model, vessels as interchangeable parts in a pictorial machine; the drama of light on form. Endlessly fascinating.” 
Gary Faigin, Still Life Atelier Instructor
