Mansion gallery to show ‘Fare’

Submitted by the Utah Arts & Museums

Utah Arts & Museums announces the opening of the exhibition "Fare" in the Alice Merrill Horne Gallery, located inside the Glendinning Mansion, 617 E. South Temple, in Salt Lake City. The show runs from Sept. 21 to Nov. 16, 2012, and gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The gallery also will be open for the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll on Friday, Sept. 21, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The exhibition explores the relationship of food to culture. "Food defines us in so many ways," said Margaret Hunt, Director of Utah Arts & Museums. "It’s connected to innumerable aspects of our existence: survival, comfort, religion, culture, economics, health, celebration, family. The artists in this exhibition were asked to think about how their favorite food is a telling characteristic of their culture." The word "fare" denotes nourishment, but it also connotes traveling or taking a journey, indicating how strongly food is linked to environment.

"Fare" features works by Martin Blundell, Sam Wilson, Trent Call, Dorothee Martens, Anthony Siciliano, Shami Kanekar, Fahime Amiri, Kim Martinez and Joe Ostraff, among others.
