Suffolk breast cancer charity Art For Cure has joined forces with Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, to curate a foodie themed fringe event.
Feast, sponsored by Pump Street Chocolate and Urban Resolve, brings together the work of 30 contemporary artists - with many of the ceramics, sculptures, textiles and paintings being showcased at Ballroom Arts in Aldeburgh having a food theme.
The exhibition opens from Saturday, September 25, to September 28, with ceramics being a highlight - including commissioned pieces from Lucy Ogden, who presents her series of best-selling earthenware crab plates, made using layers of coloured slips and paper resist.
She's joined by chef and food writer Claudia Roden's favourite plate designer Rosamund Coady, Ipswich potter Cathy Outen, whose glazed giant pears can be found in homes around the country, and Kate Reynolds, whose autumn platters and vibrant dining ware collection has been created with break-through graduate Frankie Atkinson from Mistley.
No Art For Cure show is without contribution from iconic figurative artist Henrietta Dubrey. Her ‘Madame Moules’ has become the dramatic poster girl for FEAST, alongside her 26-piece A-Z of foods.
You may also want to watch:
Then there are candlesticks from Brighton designer Duck Ceramics, exotic still life portraits from Sarah Baddon Price, and huge garlic prints from Norwich artist Eliza Stimpson.
Money raised at the exhibition (open daily from 10am to 6pm), will support Art for Cure's work. Cards and an Art for Cure candle will be on sale for the charity, alongside kitchen textiles and hand-marbled books.
