Concept of the Show:
We may not be able to all gather together to share a meal right now, but we can gather our efforts as a community to bring meals to others in need. We can do this in a tradition that is centuries old. Food has always played a significant part in our social and cultural lifestyles. From the Lascaux cave paintings in France, to da Vinci’s 15th-century “Last Supper” and the 17th century when the Dutch perfected the art of still life painting, to Norman Rockwell's depiction of a Thanksgiving dinner in the 1940s ("Freedom from Want") and Andy Warhol's iconic Campbell soup cans in the 1960s, food has been depicted in art. Pre-historic ceramic pots used for cooking have been found in China, Japan, and Russia.
The show will be about food from any point of view. Paint a still life, a harvest scene, an orchard, a restaurant, or a farmer’s market. Fashion a necklace or other jewelry using seeds or nuts. Make a table setting or any vessel used for food or drink -- bowls, pitchers, platters, cups, baskets -- using any medium. Create fruit or vegetables out of wood, clay, or paper mache. Weave a table cloth, napkins or table runner. Use mismatched silverware to build a mobile. You are limited only by your imagination….
