Recipe Swap Part of WAG Exhibition for Foodies!

Feast, a new exhibition opening at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on October 29, is all about food. What role does food and feasting play in our lives? How does one extol the virtues of a fine glass of wine, a bag of greasy French fries from the local chip truck? Feast is a unique and tantalizing exhibition featuring a smorgasbord of approximately 30 works from the Gallery’s permanent collection that explores a variety of fascinating issues and ideas surrounding food and the daily act of eating.

The works in this exhibition, curated by the WAG’s Art Educators, run the gamut from decorative ceramic plates to drawings and photographs to paintings and cutlery.

Since it’s all about food, there’s even a recipe swap! Visitors are invited to bring along their favourite recipe and drop it in the recipe box to share with others. They are then welcome to sit down, check out the other recipes, and copy out some exciting new ones. Recipes will also be shared online on the WAG’s BLOG.

Feast continues at the WAG until March 25, 2012.
