Exhibition Invites You to Feed Your Palette and Palate

Four Smith seniors have teamed up to create an exhibition, “Feed Your Palette,” of art works—paintings and works on paper—focusing on food and other subjects, on display in Jannotta Gallery, Hillyer Hall, this week, through April 19.

A reception, on Friday, April 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the gallery, will feature a menu of cuisine designed to contribute to the sensation of interacting with the artworks in the exhibition.

“I work with watercolor, acrylic inks, oil and sometimes graphite to observe and reflect on the beauty of the fruits of nature,” said contributing artist Melissa Schermerhorn. “I am a mother and painting lets me explore the glory of providing a feast for the eyes.”

Schermerhorn’s paintings of translucent fruits will be presented with drawings by Talia Levy of fauna interacting with their environment; paintings and charcoals by Gina Marie DeLuca of imaginary characters; and works by Katherine Bessey that examine light and its influence.

The artists plan to invite participation with the art by serving sparkling punch; cold beet and apple salad with blue tortilla chips; hummus with curry spice and dried currants; dates stuffed with goat cheese and walnuts; chocolate spice cupcakes; and toasted Italian bread with red pepper tapenade baked with mozzarella.

Feed your palette.
