for you & me

I try not to eat boxed food.  During some previous food sermon, I’m sure I have expounded on my quest for a diet comprised of whole foods, locally sourced and preferably organic.  But, I fall short–everyday.  I do the best I can as I am sure you do, but convenience foods are aptly named.  Sometimes convenience in necessary.  GF pasta and flour are not items I am willing to tackle as whole foods projects at this point.  This next Call is an excellent reason to get our of your artistic box.  Take a look…

gardens in bloom

I pursued the holy grail of dining in the Holy City recently.  My meal began on the porch of a grand Southern home in historic Charleston, SC overlooking a garden of heirloom blooms cultivated on the property.  My meal began with a hand-propagated, rare tomato varietal and a gorgeous regional wine fermented from heirloom grapes.  Even blind folded, I couldn’t have expected to be anywhere other than one of the sparkling jewel cities of the culinary culture to be experienced only in the South.  The sense of place amplifies the food experience just as the sense of place in this one-of-a-kind Southern gallery exalts every work found within.  Claim your spot now…

Comfort food coincides with wet weather in my house.  I can be dreaming of a Summer salad in the middle of June, and an afternoon thunderstorm can quickly turn my thoughts to potato soup, enchilada casseroles and baked apples.  Maybe a healthier way to channel my feelings about rain would be through this next Call.  Take a look…

Did you know straws are a “girl thing”?  Me neither.  While grabbing a quick snack while shopping last week, a server looked at my son and husband and said, “I know straws are a girl thing, but I brought them for you guys too.”  Have I missed out on some American sub-culture subtlety about beverage consumption along the way?  I’m not certain how a straw can embody the female spirit; however, this next Call is asking for art that does just that.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the R. Dixon Gallery (Seneca Falls, NY) for By and About Women: celebrating the female spirit.  Deadline looming & this Call is NOT limited to female artists.  Consider a new gallery…
