A feast for the eyes and taste buds awaits visitors at the Lund Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition. ‘The Joy of Food’ will see the normally minimal surroundings of the barn which houses the Lund Gallery transformed by a showcase of ceramics, glass, tapestries, crafts and objects all inspired by the cooking, presentation and enjoyment of food.
Makers have been challenged to produce a table setting which will form part of a giant banquet, with the gallery being transformed into different zones to mirror different cultural ideas.
The show will include plenty of contemporary ceramics, including work by international names such as Walter Keeler, Sandy Brown, and Jack Docherty plus a great range of jugs, vases, platters and tableware from studio potters based across the country such as Clive Bowen, Kaori Tabeyashi and Philomena Pretsell.
The inspiration behind the show came from artists Isa Denyer and Sarah Hall Baqui. York based Isa Denyer is best known for her hand-thrown table and kitchenware . Local contemporary sculptor Sarah Hall Baqui has enjoyed notable success with her papier-maché sculptures, exhibiting work in renowned Paris store Bon Marché and creating shop displays for Mary Portas. For the Lund show she has created a spectacular large sculpture entirely from papier-maché and will also be running a papier-maché sculpture workshop during the exhibition.
