'Kitchen Gallery' a group invitational exhibition in
Park National Bank Art Gallery
The exhibit runs from May 4 – 21
BATAVIA, OH (May 8, 2012) –Kitchen Gallery, a group invitational exhibition, curated by Kim Taylor, assistant professor of fine arts at UC Clermont College, is currently featured in the Park National Bank Art Gallery at UC Clermont College from May 4 -21. An opening reception along with a “cooking performance” will be held on Tuesday, May 15, 12:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, the 19th century French gastronome, wrote in The Physiology of Taste, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what we are.” This simple statement is true in that what people eat and the way it’s eaten is as much a reflection of society’s culture as art, language or religion. It’s with this idea in mind that Kitchen Gallery, a group invitational exhibition, explores the influence of food in art.
The exhibition presents a broad range of artists— local, national and international, many finding inspiration through other cultural junctures. The exhibition includes diverse mediums of art ranging from painting, collage, photography, installation such as a dining room display, and a kitchen “love story” on video. Also featured is the traveling installation by the collaborative group ‘Serve & Project’, which presents napkin art made by artists from across the globe. The opening reception is highlighted by a cooking performance from artist and faculty member Lisa Siders-Kenney.
Participating artists include: Amy Burrell, Kelly Frigard, Adriana Galvez, Christopher Land, Kelly McCollam, James Oberschlake, Amanda Parker-Woolery, Sara Pearce, Kim Taylor, Kristan Taylor, Nishiki Tayui, John Wolfer, Jenny Ustick, Bruno Zabaglio, and Io Palmer and Lisa Link of Serve

Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m. – 7 p.m., Friday 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays.
