Columbia Art League

Feast opens April 21 at Columbia Art League. Opening reception is Saturday, April 25, 6-8pm. A sumptuous indulgence, Feast, speaks to our undeniable love of food – the comfort it offers, the sensuality and passion it evokes, and the obsessions it can burden us with. The idea of the feast – an orgy of taste, texture, aroma and color, conjures up images of medieval banquets, cornucopia laden tables, goblets a-slosh with wine, limitless excess and extravagance. Feast invites artists to play with their food, to create for the viewer a delectable escape or even to remind us of the brashness of such opulence in world where many still hunger.
