Foodie: On Eats, Eating, and Eateries in Albuquerque

March 6–May 15, 2015


If you have a craving for lithography, seize the opportunity to indulge it! During the opening reception for Foodie: On Eats, Eating, and Eateries in Albuquerque, March 6, 6-8 p.m. the public is invited to “set the table” by drawing with lithography crayons on placemat-sized stones. On Friday, April 17, from 5-7 p.m., a second public event, catered by the Frontier Restaurant, will feature Tamarind students printing from the stones drawn during the opening. Attendees will be able to take home a hand-printed placemat (while supplies last).

The exhibition, Foodie: On Eats, Eating, and Eateries in Albuquerque, in the Tamarind gallery March 6 through May 15, presents new lithographs that celebrate Albuquerque’s unique food scene. Sponsored by the City of Albuquerque Public Arts Program, eight local artists were selected to create lithographs with master printers at Tamarind Institute, The artists who participated in this project include Anne Cooper, Kenny Davis, Marne Elmore, Mark Horst, Scott Kuykendall, Valerie Roybal, Andrea Sanchez, and Natalie Voelker. In addition to the suite of lithographs created for this project, this exhibition will include work in other mediums by the participating artists. 

This exhibition is part of the citywide collaboration On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design.  From January through June 2015, public institutions join private galleries to present exhibitions, lectures, performances, and educational programming that investigate the diverse art of the greater Albuquerque region.
