Art Exhibition: Al La Carte
Exhibit runs through Friday, March 1st
1 Washington Street, Suite 1177, Dover
Food has been a subject of art since art has existed, as is demonstrated by the most ancient cave paintings such as those in Lascaux in France. Perhaps it's because food is so essential, perhaps it's because food itself can be art - but for whatever the reason, human beings have been making depictions of food for as long as we've been making depictions of anything.

A La Carte is a modern continuation of this ancient theme by member and resident artists at The Art Center. While we don't have ancient caves with pre-historic hunting scenes decorating the walls, visitors will have the opportunity to see the work of many local artists who have been challenged to produce works based upon this singular ancient theme.
