Colors of Alien Landscape
Working primarily with oil on canvas, chef and artist Andre Kaulesar uses coffee grinds and beeswax to manipulate aerial photographs of wild landscapes, giving his work a textural, abstract effect. The colors vary across light settings from bright to muted, giving the viewer different perspectives, while subjects are bright and playful to the eyes and imagination.
Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.
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.
