Good Enough to Eat: Food as Subject for Craft Exhibition (November 17, 2012- January 19, 2013)
Part 2 of 3 in the Good Enough to Eat: the Fusion of Food and Craft series
The second portion of the exhibition, Food as Subject for Craft, will feature work by artists who deal with edible subject matter in their creations, through visual depiction or conceptual reference. Among the selected artists, glass maestra Beth Lipman brings the still life into 3-dimensions with sculptures that appear frozen in time. Sienna DeGovia, an emerging Los Angeles artist, explores issues of superficiality and overindulgence through polymer sculptures of candy and other hyper-saccharinated treats. Known for his whimsical mixed media assemblages, Peter Shire causes us to question the boundaries between functional and purely sculptural handmade objects.
Exhibiting artists include: Eric Boos, Christina Carroll, Sienna DeGovia, Linda Dolack, Harriet Freedman, Susan Garson, Jennifer Halvorson, Candace Kling, Ed Bing Lee, Beth Lipman, Hilary Pfeifer, Norm Sartorius, Peter Schilling, Peter Shire, Alice Simpson, and Laura Wood.
