“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” – Voltaire
As one of our basic life needs, food has been a popular subject matter throughout modern art and art history. Depictions of food can be found in Italian Renaissance paintings, on Roman mosaics, and inside the Egyptian pyramids. Food is the cornerstone of holidays, celebrations, and the Bloomsburg Fair! Everything from fruits and vegetables to delectable desserts, elegant cuisine to greasy diner platters – we love it all, and we want to see it all! The Exchange invites you to submit artwork on the delicious theme of food. All media accepted, 2D and 3D, and all artists of all ages and levels of experience welcome!
Work due Saturday, October 14th.
Show runs Monday, October 16th, through Friday, November 17th, with work on display at both the Exchange Gallery and at Rohrbach’s Farm Market, Bakery and Barn Loft, 240 Southern Drive, Catawissa.
The Exchange asks artists and show-goers to donate non-perishable food items during the duration of this exhibition. At the end of the show, we will bring your donations to the Bloomsburg Food Cupboard.
