The Art of Food & live Art Auction
Monday 29 Feb, 2016
To celebrate Quay Arts’ 40th Anniversary, we’re proud to present an art-inspired, six-course tasting menu from renowned Island chef, Robert Thompson, followed by a live Art Auction of modern and contemporary works, all kindly donated in aid of supporting the Quay Arts charity: The Steve Ross Foundation for the Arts. Charity No. 272007.
As Quay Arts is now entirely self-financed, ‘The Art of Food & live Art Auction’ charity event will help to raise much-needed funds to continue to support the amazing artistic talent that exists on the Island and to bring free, high quality exhibitions to our community.
The tasting menu will reference notable artists such as Jackson Pollock, with a fish course of grilled pollock, grilled parmesan polenta, cuttlefish ink, red pepper, saffron and basil purées, as well as a nod to contemporary artist Damien Hirst with a sumptuous suckling pig confit course, and rounding off with a selection of melting cheeses, referencing Salvador Dali’s infamous ‘melting clocks’.
The live auction will be kindly facilitated by Hose Rhodes Dickson. Artworks include recent prints, paintings, and pottery by contemporary, award-winning artists, such as Kurt Jackson, Lisa Traxler, Matthew Chambers and many more.
The event will take place in the dramatic setting of The West Gallery at Quay Arts, where artist Paul Woods has been creating a backdrop of thrones and architectural models from recycled wood.
So if you enjoy Art and Food, and want to support Quay Arts, come along to what promises to be a very special evening!
Thursday 10th March 2016, 7pm – 10.30pm
