Art of Food

Hot about his product

That’s John up there. You might have seen him from time to time pop up on these virtual pages. He married my friend Anne, teaches school, makes art, and can whip up a killer chocolate waffle. (He also made a favorite t-shirt I wear proudly)

Now I’ve seen his paintings in bits and pieces, but never been to a show of his work proper. That changed on leap day when he was part of a big show called the Art of Food down in Covington.

It opened yesterday with much fanfare (and calories).

Culinary samples from around Greater Cincinnati were set up in the main space of The Carnegie and flanked by galleries for each artist.

Everything was delicious, from art to food, but especially seeing old friends and shaking hands of new ones. Good times.

The show is running through March 28, 2008. More information at The Carnegie’s site.
