hot off the printer

I need a food replicator.  The replicator from the Quark Bar (Star Trek) would be a stand out in any kitchen.  Although I have to admit that using 3D printing technology for food gives me pause.  I can’t wrap my brain around the ingredients that could take so little space that it would fit in my kitchen but yet be able to create an almost infinite variety of foods.  Freaky, no?  There must be science I am just not comprehending.  But, I have to admit the pizza pictured here doesn’t look half bad.  This next Call wants to see how YOU use the technology.  Fascinating…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Niza Knoll Gallery (Denver, CO) for Digital Dimensions.  Enter for as little as $10.  If this isn’t for you, please be sure to share.  Take a look…

BLUE

I survived another holiday without eating blue food.  Why do people eat the blue food? Blue iced cookies & cakes are everywhere this time of year, so I am going to say this again… step away from the blue food.  The closest thing to naturally occurring blue food is squid ink.  Eat all the squid ink your heart desires, but please stop buying blue Jell-o, Koolaid, popsicles & icing.  You’re only encouraging them.  If you need to experience ALL the colors of the rainbow (including blue), try this next Call instead.  Take a look…

“I think the way we perceive color is our sixth sense.  I can taste lemon yellow.  I can feel the inherent nobility in imperial purple.  A pop of color?  Too tame …during this exhibit, the gallery walls will come alive with explosions of color!  As an artist, you likely have a special relationship with color.  Are your colors complementary or diametrically opposed?  It’s a question that we’re looking forward to seeing how you answer.” –from rdixongallery.com

FILTERED

Mellow, slow-cooked flavors are not usually just a product of slow cooking.  There are special ingredients that help meld flavors, that calm individual ingredients like onion into more flavorful combinations with other foods.  Home-made broths are excellent, and even a quality Worcestershire sauce can make a stove-top dinner feel like a slow-cooked delicacy.  My favorite is still sherry vinegar.  It is the penultimate calming pan de-glaze much like the neutral density filter, for which this Call is titled, is the most under-appreciated photo filter. I know–segue, right? :)  Take a look…

Niche market foods abound.  Don’t you ever wonder who decided, “I want to grow lavender mint microgreens when I grow up”?  But someone grows lavender mint microgreens.  I used to wonder if there was a place for me in the market to make goat cheese for a living, but I have dismissed feeling like the market was too small to support my goat cheese obsession.  But now the idea of raising goats and making cheese sounds like I want to be an agricultural giant by comparison to lavender mint microgreens, eh?  This next Call is all about the niche market.  Take a look…

and one alone

I don’t share well.  I don’t share anything well, but food is the worst.   I am not proud of it.  Maybe it is an only child thing.  I can logically know that a dish will be too much for me, but I will still not agree to share instead.  If I agree to a lets-get-one-of-each-and-share deal, we have to quite literally cut them in half upon arrival & exchange the halves.  Otherwise I spend the meal obsessing about whether or not my husband will eat more than his half.  I fall short of counting french fries–but just barely.  So, my submission to this next Call will likely be a solo one (although my better self sometimes triumphs); however, you are welcome to contemplate sharing.  Take a look…

Red is undeniably my favorite color.  I find myself drawn to red tones in food, from salmon to cherry Jell-o, Bloody Mary’s to pomegranates.  Go figure.  But recently I tripped across golden raspberries.  How had I missed them all these years?  They are slightly sweeter & milder than the traditional red variety, and I am willing to admit that I like them better in some instances.  I feel like such a traitor.  The next Call is the perfect red celebration.  I like this group exhibit…

GROW

I have been searching for my place–in art, in music, in food, in the world.  I have a long history of wanting to do everything at all times.  I want to get it all right, experience it all, eat it all, see it all, do it all.  As a result, I often get none of them quite right.  Silly to some, I believe the answer is geographical.  I continue to seek smaller spaces and places–one town smaller than the next.  Now I seek space, acres inside the next smallest town.  Not isolation so much as controlled interaction.  Space to think.  Space to choose.  Space to grow.  Where is YOUR space?  Your place?  The next Call wants your answers–or questions.  What do you have to say?

Finding Our Place

“If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know who you are.”
–Wendell Berry

A sense of place can be an essential element in artists’ creative life, and frequently informs their subject matter, materials, style, approach, studio location, and more.  Whether it be ones childhood “primal landscape,” full of memories of home and family, or the pull of a dramatic landscape, or a connection to a particular place based on historical and cultural events, geography calls to the imagination.  As the world shifts to a focus on the virtual, how has this impacted artists’ work?  Has it resulted in a weakening of a sense of place, or has the meaning of place simply adjusted to this new reality?  This exhibit invites artists to explore this issue from either or both sides, and to celebrate what place means to them.  What informs your work?  A physical location or a virtual world?  Do you know “where you are?” — from annmariegarden.org
