What Feeds Us A collection of photographs by Sally Shintaffer & Poppy Barach explores the meaning of What Feeds Us. Single images and collage-like groupings emphasize the essential sensual character of food and offer perspective beyond the plate. In their MixedGreens blog, they focus on stepping lightly and living locally with an emphasis on whole foods in season. Through this collection, they take a more personal look at what sustains them. We do not live by bread alone so come sit at the table with us and enjoy an interesting evening.

About the Artists: Seattle artist, Brian White uses found materials such as old dolls and archaic tool remains to create his fantastically creepy sculptures.“The objects I collect and use in my work hold for me such emotion, and a connection to our past. Things left unsaid or undone, things long forgotten and discarded, and the things we loved or hurt us in our past.

Troy Gua, (recently profiled in City Arts) challenges the cliché that’s rampant within the current media: the exploitation of the female form. Gua’s hand-cut paper, glass and wood blocks of the female form include sensual materials such as velvet and vinyl to make a statement on the exaggerated associations of larger than life women and their iconic parts.

Ildiko Kalapacs is a Hungarian-American artist who has exhibited internationally. Her delicate bronze and mixed media sculptures of figures include doilies, candy dishes, crosses and guns to explore cultural identity and tackle the issues of self-worth while referring to the expectations society requires of women.

Shannon Kallsen’s enigmatic photographs of female mannequins in windows reflect the beautiful colors of feathered fashionistas selling sexy lingerie, as well as the expectations of women created through consumerism.

Mira Kamada’s large oil paintings on canvas are part of an ongoing series, Mannequin Paintings. Stilled figures in subtle palettes of color are composed within the cacophonous lines found in unpredictable urban landscapes. Her feminine figures draped in ghostly garb embody the fleeting ideas of contemporary culture and fashion. Join all four artists at the opening reception on March 12th from 6-7:30pm.
