CALL for ENTRIES: 32nd Classic

2017 May 11

Learn more about the 32nd Annual Bosque Art Classic from the Bosque Art Center!hot TAMALES

My child volunteered me to make tamales for his entire Spanish class.  He then neglected to schedule being home to assist me. (Fear not; I didn’t strangle him.) I love tamales, and I love making tamales.  The smells are earthy, the masa is fluffy & husks are the perfect wrapper.  I often make the ones that are tied at each end because I prefer the masa to filling ration.  They are more common in north Mexico and Texas.  And whaddya know… this next Call also hails from Texas.  This is a prestigious opportunity for representational artists…

Two of the most used utensils in my kitchen are ice cream scoops, and neither gets used for ice cream.  We haven’t make full pans of brownies or cornbread or cake in years.  We use those scoops to portion everything from quiche to bread in muffin tins.  With everyone on the go, we find single-serving sized foods make for fewer excuses for not taking quality food from home.  As a gallerist, I’ve found that small works often take the I-don’t-have-room objection off the table too.  This next Call wants the best of your small work.  This is a great opportunity…

My earliest food influences came from my grandmother & her sister Maggie.  They had such different styles.  My grandmother was all about a meat, two veggies, some form of potato, bread & dessert.  Every meal.  My great aunt Mag was all about the drama.  Her corn-on-the-cob was the best.  Her deviled eggs were the best.  Her pancakes were the best.  But everything else, apart from the star of the meal, was an after thought.  I find myself gravitating toward concentrating on one dish and forgetting the rest.  All the glory, none of the mundane. What a strategy, eh?  This next Call wants to know about your familial connections.  Take a look…

These days most produce is waxy, cartoon-saturated perfection.  Take baby-shaped carrots.  We can’t handle carrots with their roots and imperfect skin, so now we whittle them down to miniature perfection.  The other day I picked up a head of iceberg lettuce and promptly put it back down because it was pale-colored.  I’ve been influenced too.  Colorful food is wonderful & healthy & flavorful, but perfection is unnecessary & wasteful.  This next Call is colorful, but not wasteful.  Take a look…
