Food for thought as we enter March

February 28, 2013 by  

As March begins tomorrow, so does the Seventh Annual Art of Food at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in Covington, located about three miles from Southgate.

There are six galleries within the Carnegie and each will be showcasing works of art in food presentations and creations by leading chefs and artists. Participating culinary professionals include Amy Swoboda, Jeff Sutherland, Pam Kravetz, Valerie Escobeda, Timothy Gold, Sandra Goss, Eric Brass, Leah Busch, and Carole Lichty-Smith.

Culinary exhibitions and shows of this type frequently call upon the printing services of local printers to help organize, market, and manage the event. Pre-event marketing is essential in order to publicize the event and generate interest. Ideally successful marketing efforts pay off with maximum attendance and participation at the event. Flyer and poster printing works well to announce the upcoming exhibition as the flyers can easily be distributed in person, from outlets and through direct mail. Posters can be hung throughout the communities for all to see.

The Carnegie Galleries have been working with local and regional artists for over 30 years for the purpose of showcasing their art. The facility has over 6,000 square feet of space for exhibitions, shows, and events. In addition to the Art of Food event, the schedule offers dozens of events throughout the year, including art auctions, photography, hair shows, and art displays.

The event runs March 1 – 21. More information is available via the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center website including upcoming events as well as volunteer and sponsorship opportunities.
