Culture Connect Featured Event
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Joan Fitzsimmons, Laura Barr, Alexis Neider, Barbara Marks, and Lisa Hess Hesselgrave.
The exhibition will take place at Katalina’s cupcake shop at 74 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, and will be on display from September 10th until November 2nd, 2012. Katalina’s is open to the public during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Refreshments and light appetizers will be served, including cupcakes, of course!
The exhibit will feature artwork that revolves around the theme of food, including colorful and playful paintings of indulgent breakfasts and black and white photographs of emptied glasses. The exhibition, curated by our Director of Artistic Services & Programs, Debbie Hesse, brings together all the abundance and the lack that the theme summons within all of us, roughly three times a day.
This exhibition will also complement the Arts Paper’s September issue “The Art of Food,” which will highlight local culinary talent, delve into international eating trends, discuss food documentaries, and goes behind-the-scenes in the article “The Ballet of Service.”
