Ponder Food as Love

Ralph Arnold Fine Arts Annex

Photographic collaborators Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman invite you to Ponder Food as Love. Explore the delicate and compelling nature of nurturing. Each image is a glimpse into the cycles of sustenance and the pursuit of transcendence. Offerings are presented with tenderness and abandon as the body dissolves into landscape, theater, serving plate, altar, banquet and booty, and the line between serving and self-blurs. Admission is free.
