Curiosity is gluttony.  To see is to devour. –Victor Hugo

Accept artwork: January 4 (11:30-6) and January 5 (11-5)
Opening Reception: January 11 (6-8)

Each year, our annual food-themed show invites artists and viewers alike to partake in an opulent visual feast, exploring the complexity of our relationship to the edible.  In this show, CAL’s walls feature depictions of consumption, indulgence, obsession, and desire, juxtaposed with simple pleasures, sweet nostalgia, comfort, and even reverence for the precious morsels that sustain us.  Here, artists are encouraged to explore that which tempts their most gluttonous appetites, or remind us of the perils of our own intemperance.

Things to remember:
-Artists may submit up to two pieces of work for this show.
-ALL WORK must be wired and legibly signed on the back prior to drop off at CAL. 3D work must be clearly labeled and prepared for presentation.
- Everyone must pay an entry fee. Entry fees help cover costs of the Opening Reception and hiring a juror. Artists pay one entry fee regardless of how many pieces they submit (Members- $15, Non-members- $25, Student Members- $10, Student non-members- $15)
