Gallery Opening: Celebrate Montalvo’s opening of Mountains in My Spoon with the participating artists in the Project Space Gallery. Featuring photography, video, installation and social sculpture, Mountains in my Spoon celebrates Lucas Artists Program Fellow’s exploration of food ─ the experience of eating together, the work of those who nourish us, the role of food in fostering wellbeing, and the complex political relationship we have with what we eat. Participating artist Sita Bhaumik will serve chai tea and ice cream will be available for purchase.

There will be magazine and book tables displaying works by local writers (Catherine Segurson, Catamaran and Thy Tran, Asian Culinary Forum to name a few) and plenty of opportunities to connect with the writers themselves.

The event is FREE. Wine and delicious culinary morsels will be prepared by local artisan food makers and available to sample and purchase. Bring cash!
