COLUMBIA — This article is a part of ArtTalk, a new Missourian project inviting people from the arts community to tell us what’s cooking around town. To submit something you're excited about and open the eyes of the community to local art, fill out the form at the bottom of this story. Find past submissions here.

Here's the latest in the series, written by Katie Rapp, pictured at left. Rapp is a marketing intern for Orr Street Studios.

Q: What artistic project or product are you excited about?

A: Naomi Sugino Lear's "Longviews" show at Orr Street Studios and the Art of Food event sponsored by North Village Arts District Farmers and Artisans Market. 

Q: Why are you excited, and why might other people be interested?

A: Naomi's show is a really interesting glimpse into interior spaces. We spend most of our days inside and Naomi used this as her subject. She has created a really interesting artistic account of the spaces that we occupy so much of our time in. Naomi captures familiar scenes in a very captivating way.

The Art of Food event is a fundraising event for the North Village Arts District Farmers and Artisans Market combining food and art. Various galleries will host the artisan foods/beverages of various Columbia food establishments. The progressive party will end with a concert at The Bridge, where Rock Bridge Brewing Company will be offering beer samples.

Q: Is there an event attached to the project?

A: Naomi's show will be exhibited from now until March 17.

The Art of Food event is from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 20. The cost is $30 a person or $50 per pair. Tickets may be purchased at PS: Gallery, Orr Street Studios, Root Cellar, or (Facebook event is here.)
