Pineapple, Potato Chips and Pickles by Andrew Bixler © 2016 Creativity Explored Licensing, LLC, marker and watercolor pencil on paper, 4 x 6 inches

CE artists dig into one of the life's most luscious subjects: food.

In this group exhibition, CE artists examine the rich history of cuisines from all over the world, exploring a smorgasbord of related subtopics from the ritual and symbolism of a particular meal to how what we consume impacts our cultural identities and our environment. The egalitarian nature of the subject matter aims to connect us all, regardless of ability and disability, ethnicity, gender, and creed.

As acclaimed writer Beth Lisick notes in her Tell You Whatseries, [if] I were to make a pie chart about conversation topics at Creativity Explored, nearly half of that pie would be about food.”
