MFA Thesis Exhibition: Foodscapes

Foodscapes, Front

Join me for “Foodscapes: From Seed to Mouth” at UF University Gallery March 14-24.

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 & Seed and my home garden.

Enjoy!

The visual arts come to life at Art Bash 2015, an annual celebration featuring a wide array of projects by UF art and art history students. The University of Florida School of Art + Art History (SA+AH) opens its doors to members of the campus and surrounding communities for Art Bash on Friday, October 30, 2015 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at the UF Fine Arts Complex.

Art Bash offers an inside look at the SA+AH and showcases the scope of disciplines it offers from intimate drawings to ceramic works of art, from vibrant graphic design to sculpture, experimental photographs, interactive Art + Technology projects, prints, paintings, art history and art education displays and more. This fun, free event encourages discussion between students and the community and introduces potential students to the school’s facilities and diverse programs. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the demonstrations, exhibitions and interactive projects from both our academic and studio areas.

This year’s Art Bash will feature inflatable artworks from the students of WARP (Workshop for Art Research and Practice), our nationally recognized foundations course, HOT Clay’s Raku Firing, printmaking demonstrations, offerings for sale and free take-aways from student associations, and music in the courtyard.
