Food is not just a source of nourishment, but also a source of inspiration and pleasure. We read books about food, see movies about food, so why not check out some art about food?

Right now there is a terrific show taking place at the Studio Gallery, a tiny little shoe box space jam-packed with affordable treasures. Over thirty artists present their painting, ceramics, prints, photography, sculpture, collage and more at Delicious: A show of culinary art.

The work will nourish, inspire and even amuse you. Just check out this fabulous pomegranate created by local artist Margo Rivera-Weiss, made from bottle caps and cans!

The show runs through April 3rd. If you are unable to make it in person you can see photos of the work from the show here.
