2015 January 30

Learn more from Darkroom Gallery!ATE hours later

Cooking has moved into slow motion in my house.  As much as I want to hurry Spring along, I am reminded of our current Winter status by the icy wind that greets me at my front door each morning.  So, my slow cooker lives in a perpetual circuit from counter to refrigerator to sink to counter to refrigerator to sink–almost daily.  Tonight is lentil soup with bacon. This next Call wants to see what happens when life stills completely.  An intriguing take on a traditional form…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Still Life / Life Still. They always have a low entry fee ($24) & a great juror.  This theme leaves room for the traditionalist as well as those with a vastly different point of view. Take a look

Still Life / Life Still

The study of inanimate objects; subject matter, placement and compositional balance imply meaning that surmount everyday functionality.  Historically, a still life composition is an array of commonplace objects, inert and set in space.  These objects often include natural components such as plants, fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers accompanied by man made objects like dishes, boxes, mirrors and vases within an interior setting at eye level like a table top.  Darkroom Gallery wants to contextually explore the Still Life; some may take a traditional approach.  Others may see Still Life/Life Still as a vehicle to explore new artistic possibilities, in form, function or to convey political or emotive meanings.  Objects caught in their natural surroundings & documented on the fly can make just as poignant an image, i.e., Life Still.  – from darkroomgallery.com

I find myself conflicted over food technology.  While I appreciate the safety found in canning, freeze drying, pasteurization and more, I also have an undeniable desire to eat organic, heirloom varieties grown by my own hand.  I know the answer is balance, but I remain conflicted about my relationship with the technological aspect of the food I consume–with every bite some days.  This next Call focuses on the interaction, emotional & otherwise, between humans and their technological objects.  This will be an intriguing show.  Take a look…

Cilantro is a polarizing subject in my family.  It is all black and white–absolutely no gray area.  For more than 1/2 of my extended family, cilantro is nausea-inducing at the mere thought.  I, however, cannot imagine life without tomatillo & cilantro salsa.  (It contains nearly equal parts of each.)  I try not to judge them.  When I was younger, I always thought ginger tasted the same as I imagine lemon-scented furniture polish might taste.  Now I love it on nearly anything.  This next Call is an excellent reason to see all of the world in black and white.  You be the judge…

I get a lot of questions about living without gluten.  When I tell waitstaff at a restaurant, I am met with “I’m sorry” or the sad-trombone-look-of-pity almost every time.  Don’t cry for me Argentina.  GF eating IS what you make it.  It has made my family more adventurous, open and creative when it comes to food.  Feminism is the same; it IS what YOU make it–good & bad.  This next Call wants to know what YOU make of it.  Take a look…
