The show, entitled Food for Thought, juried by well-known Washington food writer Bonny Wolf, pays note to Washington, DC’s status as a foodie town. From creative fare to celebrity chefs to unique venues, the nation’s capital boasts diverse restaurants that fit any palette and price range. There may be more talk about food in DC than politics these days. The selected artists’ works represent many media and a range of subjects from humble vegetables, comfort food and artistic concepts that creatively capture the ever-popular topic of food. This is a multi-media show, which runs through April 16th, 2015.

Bonny Wolf is a journalist who contributes a monthly food commentary to NPR’s award-winning Weekend Edition, is author of Talking with My Mouth Full – Crabcakes Bundt Cakes and Other Kitchen Stories, and is managing editor of American Food Roots, a national food blog.

The 29 artists whose work will be on display are: M’El Abrecht, Kasse Andrews-Weller, Amy Arons, Kenneth Bachman, Jennifer Barlow, Keith Barnett, Sally Canzoneri, Elizabeth Clark, Paula Cleggett, Elizabeth Eby, Karin Edgett, Mark Elfman, Ann Elkington, Jill Finsen, Nancy Freemam, Kay Fuller, Eric Johnson, Cindi Lewis, Marian MacKerer, Charles Martin, Svetlana Monachova, Karen Norman, Linda Norton, Kate Patsch, Meera Rao, Dana Saxerud, Gale Waller, TammyWiedenaefer, and Keith Wilkie.
