Cindy Packard Richmond’s Solo Exhibit, “Food, Glorious Food”
April 7 – May 2, 2011
Opening Reception and Meet the Artist: Thursday, April 14, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
For Cindy Packard Richmond, novelist and food writer turned painter, food has always been a central interest in her life. So when her creative passion grew to include the visual arts, it was only natural that she paint the subjects she wrote about for so many years. Richmond’s sweeping food-scapes are bursting with color, flavor, and an innovative perspective.
“I am drawn to the bulbous shapes of food: the sweeping curves, tightening spirals, rounded edges, plumply ovate and corpulent.” For Richmond, design is the key element in her work, followed by color. Her choice of what to paint is purely visual – it’s all about the composition, color, and the strong design elements that form as a result of a particular composition.
