Buildings and Food @ Arthouse

29 December 2010 1,891 views No Comment

Back in November, I posted about “Austin Arty Food Events” and included the reopening of Arthouse and Jason Middlebrook’s “More Art About Buildings and Food” exhibition in the list.

If you haven’t had a chance to stop by Arthouse, the exhibition space at 7th and Congress, you can still check out the art about buildings and food until Jan. 16.

For me, the coolest part of this exhibit is that I’m part of it! One of my family recipes is painted directly onto this wall. Also, once it’s over, they will just paint over the wall so really I’m a permanent part of Arthouse now.

Since you might not be as geeked out as me about that part, what you might enjoy is the amazing glass bottles reshaped into vases, plates, and light fixtures. You can even buy some of the work in Arthouse’ online store — pieces range from $75 to $1,200.

But you can visit Arthouse at no charge, and you can have my grandmother’s recipe for matzo ball soup for free! Here is a link to that blog post in case you can’t read the handwriting below.

Finally, you may be interested in participating in a brown bag lunchtime conversation on Wednesday, Jan. 12 as part of the Middlebrook installation. Stephanie Perone from Foundation Communities, a non-profit provider of affordable housing, will discuss the philosophy and practice of sustainability in architecture.
