Food! We eat every day, but how often do we really think about the food we eat? Every culture has its celebrations, family meals, and traditions that involve food. Although these vary in different parts of the world, the impact of food is unmistakable. Food nourishes and fuels our bodies, food traditions nurture our souls.

Juror Alex Veronelli selected 34 artworks created by SAQA members from around the world. The works examine the many aspects that food plays in our daily lives — from a single piece of fruit to a still life, from the family table to the significance of food in culture and the celebration of family milestones.

Juror: Alex Veronelli, Product Manager, Aurifil

Curator: Sarah Ann Smith
