CHOMP! CHOMP! Exhibition Opens June 28 at Lansing Art Gallery
A Group Show By: Lindsay Yeatts, Emily Pelton, John Azoni
June 28 - August 27, 2011
July 8, 7 to 9 PM
CHOMP! CHOMP! features the works of three Detroit artists, who present different approaches to painting the subject matter of food. The group states, "Food is something everyone can identify with. Food engages our lusts as we indulge in, or attempt to resist rich chocolate cakes, and glazed pastries, big salty hamburgers, and french fries straight out of the deep fryer....in our American culture, food often reflects a way of life that focuses on bigger, cheaper, faster, and more and more." Citing emotions associated with food, such as joy, nostalgia, and anxiety, the artists explore food's role in our lives and importance in our culture.
