I will be hosting a solo exhibition, Thursday May 12th, from 6:30-8:30pm located at the Woods Gallery in Huntington Woods, Mi. The unique display is titled “Plated: A full Service Exhibition”, and as promised, there will be many new works to browse through….
Now what is “Plated” all about?
Well, “Plated” is an exhibition of works related to food art and plate presentation. Basically, this means I am installing the creatures of the collection atop silver platters and tea sets, topping them with syrup, and throwing on a sprinkle of sugars and spices in for good measure. Many of the works are in a state of already being eaten, while some are served fresh from the fish counter with rice and fruit garnishes. OF COURSE there are some adorable sweet creatures, and even a cheese squid or two (yes..I did just say cheese squid), but all the works are sure to fit most everyones’ taste. All aspects of the work are created using polymer/epoxy based clays, Acrylic and enamel paints, and are constructed using traditional sculpture methods. So in short, no..your cherry-on-top isn’t going to good bad 🙂
There will be over 10 brand new pieces, and several small collections of food-themed creature pendants and small, reasonably priced plated appetizers.
My fabulous husband will be presenting our visitors with a delicious presentation of cheese, fruit, and wines as well. So make sure you make an appearance to try some interesting and delicious real food items as well. We may even have some cupcakes too for all you sweet tooths out there!
I will be sure to post more information concerning this event as it approaches, but if you want to see my first solo show in over a YEAR!, mark your calenders… you won’t want to miss this one!
