‘Feast Your Eyes’ at Myrtle Beach Art Museum
June 10 - September 17, 2017
Franklin G. Burroughs and Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum, 3100 S. Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach 29577

Feast Your Eyes explores our culinary heritage as nourishment and beyond: a form of cultural, political and artistic expression; an enduring source of comfort; sometimes an object of obsession; perhaps a symbol of class, race or gender…and always a cause for celebration. Food and beverage icons, peculiar and particular to the South, will be examined with works in an expansive variety of two and three-dimensional media, including paintings in oil and watercolor; works in pastel; printmaking; photography; sculptures in ceramics, metal, wood and mixed media; textile and fiber arts, and functional art such as handcrafted dining furniture and serving ware. These objects will invite viewers to explore the confluence of the three distinct foodways (Native American, African, and European), which have converged over time and place to form our unique cuisine, originally one of survival, now exalted for its honesty, comfort, and generosity.
