|Art Exhibition & Fair 2013: Bite Me|
McGroarty's Art Exhibition and Fair bring local artists to the forefront. Visual artists can exhibit and sell their work in a curated gallery exhibition, or at booths during the outdoor Art Fair. This split presentation format allows artists to present their work to the community, even if they do not want to enter work in the curated exhibition. Visual artists working in all mediums are encouraged to enter, though the gallery portion will favor two-dimensional works such as paintings, photographs and fiber art.
The Art Exhibition's theme is "Bite Me" and will be curated by Danielle Eubank. The exhibition's theme will explore food on many levels, from its production and consumption to its value as a social, cultural, economic, and political commodity. The Art Exhibition will open Saturday, March 9, 2013, 5:00pm-9:00pm. As always, the Exhibition is free to attend and open to the public.
The Exhibition will culminate on Saturday, March 23, with our one-day-only outdoor Art Fair, which takes place 11:00am-3:00pm. The Art Fair is also free to attend and open to the public. It is a fun opportunity to interact with local artists, and there will be live music and delicious food to enjoy. The Exhibition will also remain open on the day of the Art Fair.
