For Immediate Release: The Artist Sustainability Project Presents - The Red Herring

Coming Soon... Drawing attention to recession times the piece is called “The Red Herring: cé nest pas un a restaurant,” inspired by the Magritte painting, “This is not a pipe.” In a time when we are all talking about creating jobs, the work is a performative sculpture activated by the patrons, presented in a five-course restaurant style experience including video and live character actors.

The Red Herring takes us to the dinner table, a place that brings people together; an environment that can encourage some of the best creative solutions. As a visual artist who holds a deep love for food and cooking, I aim to alter the context of the restaurant experience through a visual free verse. By creating an opportunity to collaborate creatively with my community though both food and art I hope to reinvent modes of survival and shift perspectives about the current economic situation.

Some Recent Highlights

It’s been a busy fulfilling first quarter with lots of successes. I have been laying the groundwork for this project over the last few months, and would like to thank you for all your support. The Hideaway made many great achievements in February and March. Starting with an interview during the performance Bitter/Sweet: The Artist at Work airing on the “KC Currents” show on KCUR 89.3FM. Charles Ferruzza, of The Pitch Weekly, also wrote a very helpful and informative article, introducing the Hideaway Project to our community.

To top it off in March, I got my first kiln and started to fire my own pots. A few weeks later, I acquired a wheel and threw for the first time ever. So I will be excited to introduce a new series of clay pots next month. I really enjoy the process and its meditative qualities. Again my heart felt thanks for all the great support.
