The Art of Food

May 12th - 30th

Throughout art history there has been a rich tradition of visual art depicting food. We can probably all bring to mind examples of this - still lives from the old Masters, Cezanne's depictions of fruit, photo- realist paintings on the subject, abstract compositions using simplified forms of food, pop art's focus on consumer brands, to name but a few.

Inspired by this fact the Lavit Gallery has invited 12 artists to participate in an exhibition with the theme of food. This exhibition will run from May 12th - 30th.
The full list of participating artists is as follows: Katherine Boucher Beug, Christine Bowen, Cliona Doyle, Pauline Doyle, Joe Dunne, James English, Pat Harris, Dorothy Ledwith, Una Sealy, Blaise Smith, Brian Smyth and Caroline Ward. Painting, print and drawing will all be on show in what promises to be a feast for the eyes.
