PLEASE SERVE YOURSELF | Craft + the Home Kitchen

Focus Gallery | Online Exhibition
October 9 – November 15, 2020

Cooking, eating, mixology, and making coffee is a creative outlet for many artists. A bit of science, a good color palette, and minimal rules make for great edible craft potential. They choose their dinnerware and cooking tools like they are curating an exhibition – shapes, colors, and textures all in the mix to complete the picture. 

This year we imagine you are finding yourself in the kitchen and at your table more than in the past. We noticed you are also making that experience special, connecting to the arts community with artist-made wares – a new ramen bowl or the perfect plate for toast with jam. “Please Serve Yourself” is a curated collection for your inspired days at the stove, kitchen counter, table, and TV tray.  

Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know? ~ Julia Child

We asked a few of the artists for a recipe to share with you – find them HERE
