Food for Thought: An Exhibition on display in the Gallery

The Food for Thought Gallery: An Exhibition is in it's second year.

The Food for Thought Gallery: An Exhibition is in it’s second year. It will have it’s closing reception tomorrow night.

All craft disciplines (Glass, Textiles, Furniture, Ceramics and Industrial Design) held their second collaborative studio project back in January. Two years ago, they inaugurated this concept with a project entitled “Shed” where students were tasked to work on multidisciplinary teams to develop a lighting prototype. This year the project was called “Food for Thought.” All five studios also participated in the huge charrette, which ran from January 12th to the 16th, and were tasked with developing a prototype around the theme of food.

Now all of these diploma programs have come together in Food for Thought: An Exhibition currently being displayed in the gallery at Sheridan.

“Food is a constant in our day to day lives. It satiates hunger, gives us pleasure and provides us with energy. But how often do we consider where it comes from, it’s importance in ritual and security, and it’s role in politics and power? This exhibition of work by students in the Craft and Design programs showcases ten collaborative works from all studio disciplines as they explore food related themes as a conceptual spring board to create a food experience.”

Lynne Murray, Sheridan’s Gallery coordinator, had this to say.

“The Food for Thought Exhibition is the culmination of experimentation, design, brainstorming and learning, meshing Sheridan’s Craft and Design students in team-building, skill development and creativity.
The result is an outstanding exhibition of superb work displaying creativity while highlighting social, economic and cultural art pieces giving us food for thought.”

Visit the gallery, AA wing, to see Food for Thought: An Exhibition from March 16 to 19, 2015.

Closing reception is Thursday, March 19 from 6 to 8:30 pm. Opening remarks at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome.

Here are a number of photo’s taken in January during Food for Thought’s project.

Congratulations to all the students who took part in this unique project, and a big thanks to all of the faculty members who helped make it happen.
