Food/Tastic” by Tiffany Wang

The Third Floor Gallery in the Holden Fine Arts Build­ing is pre­sented with a real treat by grad­u­ate stu­dent Tiffany Wang.  She presents her grad­u­ate show using the medi­ums of paint, pen­cil, char­coal, wood­cut, col­lage, marker, and mixed-media.  Walk­ing into the gallery, the vis­i­tor is given a feast for the eyes because food is the pre­dom­i­nant theme.  With tacos, donuts, cake, ice-cream, and stuffed pep­pers, this art­work is good enough to eat and will make you want to sink your teeth into the can­vas.  Not rec­om­mended literally.

A major­ity of the art­work is abstract, which really brings out the attrac­tive qual­i­ties of the food, evok­ing more than just the sense of sight.  Wang’s work is dis­played in pairs while some stand on their own, mak­ing up groups that all express some­thing indi­vid­ual. For addi­tional effect, the gallery is dec­o­rated with stars on the walls and brightly col­ored con­fetti on the floor, giv­ing a sug­ges­tion of a party.

Along with the food and a few cityscapes, Wang also included a few real­is­tic por­traits.  Orig­i­nally from Asia, Wang has hung these pieces to give us a sam­ple of art back in her home coun­try while pre­sent­ing abstract food to sig­nify her expe­ri­ence here in America.

View­ers are wel­come to come and get a taste at this fan­tas­tic show from April 16 to April 27.

I want to save my eyes for the recep­tion, but I can’t stop look­ing!” said one visitor.

And when the recep­tion came, it was quite vibrant.  With bal­loons, tasty snacks, and the art to top it all off, the vis­i­tors really looked happy.

Very fes­tive and col­or­ful and brings lots of life,” said a visitor.

Wang, amongst her friends and fam­ily, was show­ered with con­grat­u­la­tions, hugs, pho­tos, and even some candy; com­pli­ments of Susan Loonsk.

A truly suc­cess­ful grad show; quite deli­cious, indeed.
