A Taste of Art 2015 Exhibition
Had two images selected for the A Taste of Art 2015 Exhibition. The exhibit will be on display at The Dairy Center For The Arts in Boulder Coloardo from June 18th through July 12th, 2015. There will be an Opening Reception on Saturday the 20th of June, from 3 pm to 7 pm. The exhibit venue, The Dairy Center for the Arts, really did begin its life as a dairy!
Food is universal. We all need nourishment through food (and through art too.) Boulder’s “foodie” culture creates a rich environment for all types of culinary exploration. We have excellent restaurants, numerous farmer’s markets, community gardens, a strong locavore culture, many organic growers, and increasing numbers of food industry entrepreneurs.
A Taste of Art is about food, any way you want to look at it. The exhibit will show original art in multiple mediums. It is open to living artists of all ages, who within the United States.
“Art related to food” is up to you to create. It might show growing, harvesting, preparing, enjoying, sharing, or celebrating. It might be protest art. It might be a classical still life or a cutting edge work using unexpected methods and materials. It might be cheerful or ravenous or angry or funny. Snack food, comfort food, ethnic food, kid food, your favorite food, “bad” or “good” food? It is all up to you, the artist. What do you want to express about food?
