Food is a part of our lives. It is everywhere we look. This exhibition seeks to look at food in a different way. What if everything in the world was edible? What if food was the basic component of every aspect of our lives? What happens when good food goes bad? Let your imagination run wild. 

From whimsical to profound, pop art and low brow to classical and surrealism, this exhibit’s focus is unique takes on the subject of the edible. We are looking for the most innovative use of each medium as applied to the subjects of vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat, fish, poultry, grains and of course baked goods. If it’s food, it’s a subject. Think Dali, Arcimboldo, and Thiebaud, as well as the publications High Fructose and Juxtapoz. A master chef doesn’t just cook food, they create something delectable that is outside of the box. They understand that quality ingredients are important. Printmakers, illustrators, mixed media, sculptors, ceramicists, painters, and photographers, this is for you.
