Art Exhibit at the Scarsdale Public Library

Don’t stop by the library if you’re hungry this month. Why? Because there’s a tempting display of paintings of donuts, ice cream sundaes, oreos and cheesecake both inside and outside the Scott Room that will make your stomach growl. The delectable show of the work of Beverly Shipko is up from now until May 22 and it’s not to be missed.

We asked Shipko for some insight into her work and here is what she shared: “Food tells a story - about our culture, our socioeconomic class, and often our identities. We gather around food for meals, for social interaction, to celebrate and to connect to our community and spirituality. Art centering around food does the same thing. It tells a story. What we see or eat is as important as what we don’t eat. You know the phrase: you are what you eat? Well, you also are what you paint.”

Shipko said she draws inspiration from Dutch still life life and contemporary painters, especially Wayne Thiebaud who painted food for decades and of course, Andy Warhol.”
