Now in its third year, the Food Glorious Food Show serves up an eclectic menu of paintings, sculpture and photographs depicting food in all its fabulous forms. Cooked up by Zenith Gallery, the Zenith Community Arts Foundation (ZCAF) and the Capital Area Food Bank, the show’s mix of food, art and charity is a recipe that pleases the palates of art patrons and food aficionados, while raising money for the food bank through the sale of original art, a calendar showcasing pieces from the show, Giclée prints of select art from the calendar and a charity event.
The theme of the show is Diversity: Think Globally. Eat Locally., and as in past years, its artworks will be featured in the Food Glorious Food 2008 Calendar, along with recipes contributed by top area chefs. The calendar will be available for a minimum donation of $15 at the locations listed below, with all proceeds going to the food bank.

The Zenith Community Arts Foundation (ZCAF): Established by Margery E. Goldberg in 2000, ZCAF is the non-profit division of Zenith Gallery, committed to arts advocacy, collaboration and using art to benefit community. Among ZCAF’s most successful projects is the annual Food Glorious Food project, which has raised more than $30,000, to date, for the Capital Area Food Bank. New projects in 2007 include the September traveling exhibition of The Freedom Place Collection at Zenith Gallery, featuring privately owned works by artists Romare Bearden, Benny Andrews, Alma Thomas, Robert Freeman and Richard Yarde; and the recent launch of What Remains: The American Landscape, a program to benefit environmental nonprofits through the sale of Giclée prints of Brad Stevens’ magnificent paintings. The first beneficiary of the project is the Trust for Public Land.
