Quiet and visceral, Angel Tucker’s photography borrows formal elements from historic still-life painting and uses them as characters in self-portraiture and narrative. Light, along with objects and their composition, stand in for human subjects or emotion. The inanimate is the vehicle to express the animate.
Located in the 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. Providing artists with a complimentary space to show their work not only enhances the overall ambience of the room during events, it’s also in keeping with the Foundation’s mission to celebrate, preserve, and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity. Past exhibits have featured mouthwatering food photography, romantic watercolors of mealtime still lifes, and exuberant mixed-media collages.
