You may be familiar with Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton’s multimedia project, “The Lexicon of Sustainability,” which has been showcased at PBS.org/food. (And I’ve interviewed Douglas for a previous Bay Area Bites post.) They’ll be premiering a whole new series of videos in early February, and a photography exhibit will be opening at the David Brower Center in Berkeley.
The opening reception kicks off in the Hazel Wolf Gallery on Thursday, February 6 from 6:30-9:00 pm. The public will get a first look of Douglas’ large-scale “information artworks” that profile food producers and other individuals from agricultural communities around the country. A selection of shorts from the “Know Your Food” film series will be screened for guests, live music performed by The Pine Needles and local microbrews and edibles sourced by Whole Foods Market.
Admission is free, but be sure to RSVP to attend. And check out the calendar for an ongoing series of events that will run through May, including a seed swap, homesteading workshops, an opportunity to paint your own information artworks, a dinner hosted by local chefs and more.
