Peter Juvonen, Parvin, Patty Rogers


he representation of "Food" in art is known as early as Greek and Roman times. At the forefront of the "food painting" movement were the Dutch Realists of the 16th & 17th c., featuring rich displays of food on counters and tables. Raenell Doyle sites theses Dutch masters as her major influence, with the use of a stong light source she creates luscious depictions of fruits and flowers with shadows and mood. Richard Hall combines the knowledge of the old masters use of "harmonic proportions" with his very "English sense of humour", and creates still lifes of disparate objects plus a touch of whimsy! By the 19th c. French artists had adopted the "still life" genre, mixing traditional and modern styles. The modern style was meant to be more decorative, not just the exact representation of food. Working in the tradition of Russian Impressionism, Pam Ingalls respectful eye recognizes the beauty in the simple subjects of the culinary world. Fay Judson’s Impressionistic painting of "Grannie Smiths" pays tribute to the unending attributes and symbolism of the apple. Bread, the staple and staff of life, is colorfully rendered in Guoache by Peter Juvonen. Stylized interpretations are a part of todays "food" genre, building on the expressions of bounty and symbolism in unique ways. Patty Rogers composition is built in layers of texture and color, producing works where represational content and the texural surface upon which they are painted have equal merit. Parvin combines her classical training with contemporary design producing huge pears that hark back to bounty, but proclaim it by exagerating the size. Food in art will always exist, as an educational tool, fruits and vegetables are an invaluable subject matter to study shape, light, value, color, and then you eat them when fully ripe!

Regarding our picture framing customers,
we will be happy to deliver finished pieces to you when you find
it is too difficult to get into town.
After 20 years, we know you all very well and our goal will be to make
this period as easy for you as possible.

Needless to say, this will be a difficult time for most of the merchants
and darn inconvenient for everyone! So let your local merchants know
if you have any suggestions during this construction. The merchants are
talking to the city and the city is talking to the contractor and we, the
merchants want to talk to you, the customer, for your suggestions.
It will be worth it in the long run, Winslow will end up with proper
sewer lines and water lines, new sidewalks and some new trees!
Let us know how we can help!
