Well, here’s another fun show to add to your fall exhibition schedule! Julianne Biehl, dear artist friend of my mother and me, has a print in the tasty new show at the Newport Art Museum: Palate to Plate: Prints & Recipes From Members of The Boston Printmakers.
So what’s a Dallas/Colorado artist doing in a Boston print show in Newport, RI? Well, the Boston Printmakers is an international group, and the 99 high-calibre artists in the Newport show are from all over.
What brings them together is this theme of food and printmaking, or prints of food accompanying their recipes, collected in this charming cookbook/catalogue.
In this era of 3D printing, where the printer can make a plastic car or a gun that shoots, there’s something refreshing about an exhibit of ideas on paper. But no worries, there’s lots of variety in the visual interpretations. Each print is its own surprise, its own story. Julianne’s is quite typical of her painterly style and passion for color. Here’s my not-so-great image of her page in the catalogue.

Julianne’s and my mother’s paintings talk color together with great verve. Here’s the painting “Joyous Song” by Julianne that I get to enjoy.
So if you’re heading to Newport for a day of beauty, make sure to catch the scrumptious exhibit. Although you do take the risk of leaving very hungry!
