DECEMBER
Gallery Night: Friday, December 4, 5pm to 8pm
Erin Deneuville, Sharp Knives: Celebrating mealtime and the communal table
The paintings in this exhibition examine the loving act of preparing and sharing a meal. This act is made more poignant by recognizing the violence that exists in each of us (that is present even in our most loving acts) and the vulnerability we expose anytime we come together to share something meaningful-like a meal.
