"Food has served as an inspiration to artists for thousands of years, from images of game animals painted on prehistoric cave walls to ancient mosaics of fruit and fish on the floors of Pompeiian villas. Seventeenth century Dutch painters masterfully rendered sumptuous scenes of tables laid with fine linens and serving ware, overflowing with delicacies. In contrast, Dorthea Lang’s Depression era photographs illustrate the intersection of humanity, hunger, and the American agricultural industry. Whether it’s pop-art soup cans or an impressionistic basket of apples, food related artworks are embedded in our culture.
"The Yum exhibition, presented by COCA, celebrates and explores the role that food plays in our lives. This multi-media show is a banquet of 55 artworks, highlighting culinary themes including images of edibles, food preparation, farming practices, cooking and dining scenes, and table settings. A feast for the eyes, the Yum exhibition will provide food for thought and nourishment for the creative soul.
"The 44 participating artists are:
"Meet the artists at a public exhibit reception on Thursday, June 1, 2017 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the City Hall Art Gallery. The awards will be announced at 6:30. There is no charge for the reception or the exhibition.
"COCA is working with America's Second Harvest of the Big Bend for this exhibit reception and we ask that each reception attendee please bring a non-perishable food item to donate or make a donation during the reception, if you feel so moved. Second Harvest has considerable buying power and your dollar goes a very long way towards feeding our community. One in six people face hunger in America - including more than 107,000 here in the Big Bend region. Take action to fight hunger in your community! Visit www.FightingHunger.org for more information.
"The City Hall Art Gallery is located on the second floor of City Hall, 300 South Adams Street and is free and open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm."
