Gallery East and Gallery West
Food: Appetites and Delectability
April 15 - May 24, 2019
Reception: May 2, 5:00 - 7:00 PM
McKinley Galleries East and West present ‘Food: Appetites and Delectability’ a juried exhibition by the Truckee Meadows Community College Art Club. The artwork that makes up this show is as diverse as food itself. The students from TMCC have shown their skills in oil, acrylic, print, pencil, and even ceramic. Each piece is at once incredibly personal and surprisingly accessible. Food is inherently tied to identity, culture and history, but it also serves as a way to share these things. The overarching topic of food allows each artist to deal with their own identity as well as farther ranging themes like wealth inequality and a future that will require us to feed 10 billion people.
The TMCC Art Club “creates relationships among students interested in the visual arts and facilitates art opportunities through mentoring, workshops, and collaboration.” More information about the art program at TMCC can be found on their website.
