Jesse Winter's latest show, Edible Art LIC: 2011, part of the way-bigger-than I-thought LIC Arts Open--a week-long celebration of Long Island City's creative community. Jesse's show featured his richly-hued, personality-filled images of local chefs and their wares, and to make the opening even more special, some of his subjects had donated some of their fabulous cuisine. The sensory experience was pretty much complete.
M. Wells Diner, that caviar on brioche is a wonderful, wonderful thing!
Jesse's show is open all weekend, so if you're free, head on out to Long Island City, pop into his Ten10 Studios (located in a beautiful old two-story carriage house), then hit some of the numerous open studios and special events dotted around the neighborhood--it all promises to be wonderful!
The LIC Arts Open is scattered throughout Long Island City, Queens. Take the E train, as the 7 isn't running this weekend.
