Event Description

What is on the mind of every starving artist? Food! 440 Gallery is seeking entries for their annual summer theme show; this year's will explore food in all its manifestations from farm to table. The history of art is the history of food: ever since our ancestors depicted the hunt for dinner on the walls of caves, cuisine and culture have always met in art. Consider Van Gogh's Potato Eaters, Edward Hopper's Diner, and Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. In addition to depictions of edibles, artisans shape vessels and embroider linens for the preparation and service of our meals. Artists also confront current issues such as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's), factory farming and our national obesity epidemic. The exhibition will run from Thursday, August 21, through Saturday, September 13, 2014, with an opening reception on Thursday, August 21, 6:00-9:00 PM.

Juror: The juror for this year's Theme Show is Jennifer Coates, a painter, musician and writer living in New York City. She has written reviews of art exhibits for major arts publications, and has taught in art programs around the country. She has also widely exhibited her work in numerous group shows and has had solo shows at Feigen Contemporary, Kevin Bruk Gallery and Luxe Gallery. (See below for More About Our Juror.)
