Tasty Art SOHO Good

With mouth watering aromas emanating from the delectable cuisine prepared by Chef G (aka Guarino Cortese) as it's backdrop, The SOHO in the BURG Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists’ Reception on Saturday August 8th for their Art A La Carte exhibition. The exhibition was held in conjunction with The Local Flair Magazine whose next issue will be focused on the culinary delights that are abundant throughout the local area. A contest was held to determine which images depicting a wide variety of foods would be featured in the magazine's Harvest issue was held with the winners being displayed in the gallery's front window facing the street where all who pause to peek at the wonders inside the establishment will be able to explore the wonders found in the artists' talents. These artists are Andrea Rimberg, Kara Detrick, James Chesnick, and Jill Swersie.

Their work and the works of others who shared their talents with the gallery captured not only the imagination of those who viewed them but their taste buds as well. The enjoyment of partaking of a fine meal of colors and shapes was prevalent throughout the well attended event as the gathering feasted upon the appetizing images with their contemplations and conversations. A variety of approaches to the theme revealed the ever expanding scope of the topic and how it feeds the artistic desire to discover new ways to prepare what sustains us. In other words, the work is delicious.

In addition to the pieces on display for the Art A La Carte exhibition, a number of cells from cartoons that were also shown. These images included those of Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Felix the Cat, and others. A delight was seen in each viewer's eye as childhood memories filled their hearts with the joy of seeing their friends and their antics for the once again. The collection of Disney and Warner Brothers animation was donated to the gallery by Frank Fiore and Rob McMahon.
