Take a stroll down the Brookland Arts Walk and at the very end (or beginning, depending) you’ll find Wild Hand Workspace where, on July 16, 18 and 19, Marcella Kriebel is showing her beautiful watercolor illustrations in a collection called A Hand Drawn Feast. The exhibit is for her Art Every Day: 365 Days of Food project. You’ll see illustrations of quite a range of different food and food related things; you can bet Kriebel has illustrated your favorite thing to eat. Why not memorialize your favorite food with an art print or two? Things like sushi, pickles, pretzels, pastries, fish, vegetables, coffee, garden herbs and more are there for perusal. Kriebel is also the author and illustrator of the cookbook Mi Comida Latina, a gorgeous book full of lovely recipes, which is on display and for sale at the exhibit, or through her Etsy site, Rabbitduck Workshop.
Kriebel started illustrating food in a sketchbook while she was traveling, adding watercolor to enhance each illustration. While she traveled she cooked with many people and took notes on recipes, which lead to the development of Mi Comida Latina. Stop by Wild Hand this weekend, or on Thursday for the Monroe Street Arts Walk Third Thursday event showcasing 40 artists in the walks’ 27 studios.
