Nature Matching System

tattfoo_1322853441_69We’ll perhaps have a review down the road, but on Jan. 22 the Dunlop Art Gallery will be opening a new exhibition called On The Table. The exhibition features work by 14 Canadian and international artists and will be held at the Central and Sherwood Village galleries. It’s curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek and Wendy Peart, and will explore the subject of food.

Before that happens, though, the Dunlop is hosting a drop-in workshop called Nature Matching System which will give people an opportunity to create a small panel for an art work by Brooklyn artist Tattfoo Tan (pictured above) that will be part of On The Table. Fan’s art work will apparently examine the importance of colour to our diet.

The workshop goes on Saturday Jan. 16 from 1-4 p.m. at the Dunlop. And On the Table itself opens on Friday Jan. 22 at Central Library with an artist talk by Amber Phelps Bondaroff at 6 p.m., and a reception at 7 p.m.
