Ti Arts' Show Benefited Local Food Pantry (Past Event)

You are invited to participate in a show at the Ti Arts Downtown Gallery entitled, "Harvest to Table: Reflections in Art," a benefit for the Ticonderoga area's food pantry. It is scheduled to run from April 22-May 22, 2021 (updated schedule as of 1/14/2021). Our gallery will donate its full 30% share of the sales of art from this show to the pantry. Also, please bring a non-perishable food or toiletry item for the food pantry.

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….
