Greenhouse Gallery: The Vanishing Feast

Bounty Located in the Beard House's reception space where guests mingle and meet before meals, the Greenhouse Gallery exhibits the works of up-and-coming and established artists who work with culinary themes. For the next two months, visitors can view works by painter Cheryl Greisbach. An award-winning artist, Griesbach received her degree at New York City’s School of Visual Art, and has been on its faculty since 1985. Her oil paintings, which are influenced by European botanicals, Dutch Golden Age still lifes, and the Hudson River School, depict exotic birds, landscapes, and flora, recapturing what Griesbach describes as a vanishing world of natural beauty. Learn more about Greisbach's show.

Greenhouse Gallery: Terra Cibus

sprinkles

After a decade of capturing mostly recognizable images of food, Caren Alpert has taken an interest in photographs taken with electron microscopes, like the magnified image of cake sprinkles shown here. Alpert explains that the medium deconstructs, abstracts, and reveals the ordinary in a riveting way, and is taken with their mystery and simultaneous familiarity. She hopes that her work will transform our collective food obsession into a newfound closeness with what nourishes us. Her latest show, Terra Cibus, is now on display in the James Beard House's Greenhouse Gallery through December.

Greenhouse Gallery: Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley

Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley When Clare Carver isn't bringing the farm to table, she's vibrantly expressing it on canvas; her latest collection, Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley, is now on display at the Greenhouse Gallery at the Beard House. In a collaborative effort to produce what they love to eat and drink, Clare and her husband, Brian Marcy, run Big Table Farm, a 70-acre farm and winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Her work is integrally linked to rural life: raising cattle, goats, and chickens, training draft horses, and producing Big Table Farm wines, which were recently poured at a Beard House dinner featuring Portland’s popular European-style gastropub, Clyde Commons. Clare’s paintings, which reflect her life and work on the 110-year-old homestead, have been exhibited throughout the Bay Area, the Northwest, and Australia, including solo shows in San Francisco, Napa, and Sonoma. She studied on the East Coast at Tyler School of Art and has traveled
