"Farm to Table" Reception for Susan Whiteman at NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery

11 Woodruff Street, Saranac Lake, NY


The reception for Susan’s show “Farm to Market” will be held at NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery on Friday, July 5, from 5-7 pm, 11 Woodruff Street, Saranac Lake, NY.

When I sat down at my desk to conceptualize the exhibit (which was first called ‘Farmers’ Market’), brightly colored umbrellas and people milling around filled my head. Fun, but often painted, and just one chapter of a much longer and older story.   Where does our food come from, and what do we do with it?  Is it beautiful?  Is there hard work behind it, winter snow, barns needing paint?  We all hear that cooking is an art, but what about the cooking vessels and implements, and how it is presented to us?    One by one, I took elements of those ideas and painted them with oils and pastels into a visual story of past and present, from farm to table.  Please join me for the opening and we can have drinks under the not-painted umbrellas later.
