Foodscapes: From Seed to Mouth

BF-MFA-8

Please join me for “Foodscapes: From Seed to Mouth” at UF University Gallery until Friday March 24.

Opening Reception: Thursday March 16, 5:30 -7:30 PM
Artist Talk: Friday March 17, 12-1 PM

This thesis presents gardening, picking food and eating as enjoyable steps towards the reclamation of the food system.

Participants will select and harvest food from the tile based vertical garden with my aid. We will then prepare the items together at the preparation station, talking about the food before us and food in general. Lastly, the participant will choose a plate and sit to dine. These steps are such as to implicate the viewer in a seasonal garden landscape, the labour and bodily engagement of cooking, and a community connection in eating.

Plants, soils and seeds have been dug up from UF Organic Garden Co-OPField and Fork Farm and Gardens ,Swallowtail FarmAlachua County Feed & SeedForage Farm and my home garden.

The Gallery is open:
Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday: 10 AM – 5 PM
Thursday: 10 AM – 7 PM
Saturday: 12 PM – 4 PM

Enjoy!

It is time for the Charlie Cummings Gallery  annual exhibition Cup: The Intimate Object  and for the first time in years the exhibition is both online and has a physical setting in Gainesville Florida at Charlie’s new Gallery. Those fortunate enough to attend the opening had first choice of over 1000 cups to purchase and experience by hand. Now all the cups are online for you to peruse. The sheer variety of talent is staggering. A cup can be so much. Take a look:
