Epicurean Delights is a juried exhibition showcasing 80 deliciously handmade fine craft objects by 32 artists that will delight the foodie in all. At the opening, the show’s judges Dr. Jennifer Hardin and Emmanuel Roux presented the awards and commented on the work.
“Greek philosopher Epicurus taught that the way to a happy life was about sensation – a communal way of getting together – dining and conviviality,” Dr. Hardin said. “The works in the exhibition deal with what you put on the table, what you have on the wall that relates to food, and friendship. Common meals were very important to Epicurus and I think we all look forward to dining with our friends in the very near future. Our criteria for the awards was originality and craftsmanship.”
