“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not
made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” – Voltaire
As one of our basic life needs, food has been a popular subject matter
throughout modern art and art history. Depictions of food can be found in
Italian Renaissance paintings, on Roman mosaics, and inside the Egyptian
pyramids. Food is the cornerstone of holidays, celebrations, and the
Bloomsburg Fair! Everything from fruits and vegetables to delectable
desserts, elegant cuisine to greasy diner platters – we love it all, and we
want to see it all! The Exchange invites you to submit artwork on the
delicious theme of food.
The Exchange asks artists and show-goers to donate non-perishable food
items during the duration of this exhibition. At the end of the show, we
will bring your donations to the Bloomsburg Food Cupboard.
