Gather with us & the featured artists on the Opening Night Reception, taking place on Friday, November 4th, 2022 from 5-8pm. It takes place at The Gallery at Stone & Spoon, 110 W Michigan Ave., Ypsilanti MI 48197.

Curators Note:

Connecting over food reaches across all cultures, and brings people together in a way that nothing else can. Food has historically been a form of currency and recently become highly popularized as a source of entertainment with media. It has been politicized and controlled at the expense of farmers and entire cultures across the globe. 

 

At our core, eating is what brings us “home.” A mouthful of macaroni and cheese will take us back to a childhood memory and a fresh tomato off the vine will remind us why we spend all summer waiting on its glorious, juicy burst of flavor. 

 

It makes so much sense that food has become a subject for art since some of the earliest paintings including the hunting scenes in the Caves of Lascaux. That is what we do. We eat, we live, we record, we eat, we live, we record and so on, and that is what brings us here, today to enjoy some of today’s recordings by our local artists. Let’s enjoy their unique interpretations and realize that food actually is what brings us together now…and forever. 

The Gallery at Stone & Spoon is Downtown Ypsilanti's newest creative epicenter which will include rotating art exhibitions, workshops, classes, meet-ups and more!

 

This space is on the second story of a beautiful 1850 historic building (above the shop), which you will enjoy as you make your way through Stone & Spoon that still showcases the building's original wood floors, tin ceilings and exposed brick walls.

Mobility note: Our beautiful 19th century building has no elevator, so all attendees will need to take a flight of stairs up to The Gallery. If you are unable to do stairs, but would like to see the exhibition, we will be posting a live video of the exhibition alongside the artist for an insider's perspective. This will be another great way to see these pieces!
