Join us for the opening reception of Big Bellies at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF), Katz Snyder Gallery.

Big Bellies celebrates food at large, a popular subject at the Creativity Explored studios. This expansive collection sparks a larger conversation around cultural identity, family traditions, class, and nourishment.

Playing off the theme of artistic beauty in food, Big Bellies features work by 18 Creativity Explored artists who include food as visual or conceptual elements.

From quintessential desserts to arrays of fruits and vegetables, from hyper-processed packaged food to simple bowls of rice, the representation of food in Big Bellies goes beyond classical still-life, the food items are more than metaphorical messages, but reflections on identity and tradition.

A visually finger-licking adventure, Big Bellies provokes the senses and tempts visitors to
expand their aesthetic diet.
