Every year, the McKinney Avenue Contemporary hosts its annual membership show where members are invited to submit art that speaks to them about a given topic. This year, the theme is gastronomia: erotica y estimulante. Members were asked what foods stimulate them and the submissions ranged from sexy citrus to seductive sweets. The exhibit runs through August, but if you’re on McKinney this weekend stop by the opening reception on Saturday at 5:30 pm. Go before dinner, it just might stimulate your appetite….or more.
I believe this Annual Membership Exhibition has the possibility of being one of the most stimulating Membership Exhibitions to date. Food has been the subtext for love and war throughout recorded history. Are we the masters of the table or is food seducing us? Undoubtedly the artist view will be very diverse! -Liliana Bloch, MAC director
