my next event is in montreal, meaning cultureisland is going global! super excited about this one:
sara r. radin, nyc based curator of cultureisland, presents delicatessen, a pop-up exhibit of artwork by montreal’s emerging fast food painter, sarah osborne.
more about sarah osborne:
+ originally from montreal, painter sarah osborne received her undergraduate degree in visual arts at uqam | université du québec à montréal. she is currently pursuing an mfa at concordia university. sarah’s interest in capturing food started with a series of paintings she did last summer on the subject of jehane benoit. after leaving for paris to study at la sorbonne, benoit came back to quebec and became the first person to document the traditional quebecois food, cusine canadienne. as sarah was creating this series, she was simultaneously working at hof kelsten, jewish bakery where she grew curious about jewish traditions and cuisine. this ultimately inspired her to create contemporary still life paintings of food including bagels, deli sandwiches and pickles.
more about sara r. radin:

sara and sarah were first introduced through a mutual friend/artist greg moncada over facebook. sara immediately fell in love with sarah’s paintings of deli sandwiches, hamburgers and hotdogs. together, the two came up with the idea of showing sarah’s paintings at a montreal deli. for several months, sara and sarah have been orchestrating this event over email and skype. they look forward to finally meeting in person, bringing this concept to life and celebrating with friends, family and strangers!
thank you to hof kelsten for hosting + helping us make this idea a reality! wine and mini deli sandwiches will be served with a $5 suggested donation.
