Katie Gingrass Gallery

Joanna Poehlmann

Admittedly, I'm most at home working in the realm of birds, spiders, frogs, and other critters, but having been born into a family of bakers might explain my interest in depicting food as well. In the early 1970's, when I had exhausted drawing as many variations of bread, rolls, tortes, and pastries as I could think of, I began trying my hand at a whole series of vegetables. It was a pleasant way to morph back to nature, the plants of course, being another aspect of botany.

In this showing, with a few exceptions, the venue seemed a fitting background for "Veggies Revisited." This time, some are some are born again as homages to past painters I've admired for many years. Bon Apetit!
