In Season

In Season celebrates food. The exhibiting artists share in a long-standing tradition of using food imagery to pay honor, to memorialize, to connect and to laugh. Each artist in this show utilizes food as a tool to propel their narrative. In some cases, it is a reflection of their own daily interests, in others: a way of working through their thoughts on the value of labor and the its connection to the food we eat. Of course, with all of these bananas in the room we have a good bit of bodily humor happening in this show too.  These material-based works share a love for saturated colors and a sentiment for the cultural, traditional and nutritional value of our food.
