Like 14-year-olds and stoners, artists over the centuries have been preoccupied with food, from the wild strawberries of Chardin to local artist Jason Mecier' Red Vines portraiture. "Much like visual art, food can either be easily taken for granted or thoroughly enjoyed as one of life's necessary luxuries," reads the press teaser for Local Flavor. "This exhibition takes the latter approach." The show's Bay Area artists include Mecier, Reuben Rude, Nome Edonna, Rachel Major, Romanowski, Dmitri SFC, Phokos, Andy Stattmiller, and Brandon Maddoc. The show ends Nov. 1.
