Gallery Hours & Info
Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 7, 6-8pm
Potluck Picnic: Saturday, September 18, 11:30am-2:30pm
The installation For the Love of Food had its genesis in a conversation between Anne Greenwood, Helen Hiebert, Diane Jacobs, and Shu-Ju Wang, a group of Portland, Oregon artists who have been meeting monthly for the past five years. Greenwood’s concerns about the decline in the nutritional value of the foods we consume prompted the group to investigate the various issues surrounding food in our modern cultures.
The exhibit will feature an installation of an imaginary dining room table and also includes a video component with the assistance from media artist Andrew Wade Smith.
Please also join the artists in a potluck picnic on September 18, 11:30am to 2:30pm, on the east lawn of the Walters Arts Center.
September is Hunger Action Month and the Walters Arts Center is hosting a food drive for the Oregon Food Bank; please bring a can of food or other non-perishable items when you come see the show!
