Opening Reception: Friday, April 11, 2014, 5-9PM

From the Gallery: "This show will touch on many aspects of this rich topic and will include fine craft used in the everyday dining ritual as well as non functional works ranging from still life to explorations of the politics of our food, where it comes from and how it changes us. Supporting local artisans intersects perfectly with the ideas of farm to table dining supporting the local food economy and so during this exhibit the Artisan Gallery and Creamery Cafe will be partnering with many of our wonderful local food purveyors and artists for special events throughout the exhibit with details to be announced."

Exquisite Corpse

Opening Reception: Friday, June 6, 2014, 5-9PM

In the Cooler: Exquisite Corpse

From the Gallery: This take on an old parlor game made popular by the Surrealist artists of the 1920's is a method by which a collection of images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence and is allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed. Artisan Gallery has invited gallery artists to create one third of a figure without knowing what their fellow artists are creating. These one of a kind collaborations should be as fun for us to experience as they will be for the artists to create.
