Current Exhibition

From the Market

Brooke Olivares-Caloiaro, Jason Morgan, Sally Tharp, and Richard Lillash

Artist Reception: Friday, May 5th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm

This May, Brandt-Roberts Galleries will feature the works of Brooke Olivares-Caloiaro, Richard Lillash, Sally Tharp, and Jason Morgan in an exhibit titled From the Market. Each artist will show a contemporary view of the long and historic tradition of portraying food in artwork. This exhibition will particularly focus on the foods these artists gather from their local fresh markets. Their subjects will appear in many forms; from growth, to harvest, to preparation, to consumption.

The depiction of food in art spans across cultures and all of recorded human history. From the Greek and Romans, to the Old Masters, to contemporary artist, many generations of artists have partaken in this artistic tradition. Whether created to express a bountiful harvest, to boast an artist's talent, or to signify the wealth of a patron, food as the symbolic subject of artwork has been a consistent endeavor among painters. Foodscapes in art faded in the early 20th century. However, platforms like Instagram allow individuals to share images of their food tableaus in a romanticized light, not dissimilar to the grandiose Dutch still-lifes 15th century. This exhibit aims to contemporize the food painting with these new outlets in mind.
