Heading up to Healdsburg next month?Don't miss an exciting new exhibition at stunning Studio BARNDIVA, next door to the BARNDIVA restaurant in collaboration with San Francisco curator Maggie Spicer.
Salon des Sens is a food art show engaging the senses from compost to carrot crémeux, a curated collection from 15 remarkable artists who work in a variety of media ~ photography, video, acrylics, wire sculpture, watercolor, soil and food.
The opening reception on June 2nd will feature edible art by Barndiva’s Chef Ryan Fancher, and cocktails by St. George Spirits.
To experience life’s cycle from compost to plant to plate is a sensual journey we take every day with little or no thought. Yet it is potentially a visual exploration of taste, texture, shape, and smell which has the power to affect and teach us on the deepest level.
Studio Barndiva and Guest Curator Maggie Spicer are proud to present Salon des Sens, a group exhibition which sets out to explore how art can frame and elevate a conversation we should be having about the food we eat.
