Serve It Up and Little Treats call card


Food and the elaborate tableware with which it is served have always been the subject of art. The art of cuisine relies on the interplay between artful plating and the plates themselves. From still-life to ceramic vessels and platters, from abstract to realism, and from serious to whimsical, we welcome all work that fits the theme!

This is a paired show.   Serve it up! to be held in the front gallery will consist of works that are over 10 inches in all dimensions. The back gallery will display ‘Little Treats’, small pieces that fit within a 10-inch cube.

Open to all 2-D and 3-D mediums. At this time, we are unable to accept electronic media. Both large and small pieces can be submitted together in each entry.


ArtWorks Gallery, 69 Main St., Ware, MA 01082
