Alchemy 2017
Programmed Art Residency

Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada

Program Dates: August 20-30, 2017
Submission Deadline: Closed

Alchemy is a 10 day residency devoted to the exploration of the synergy between artistic practice and the cooking and sharing of locally cultivated food. Participants delve into individual or collaborative work in a variety of mediums (visual arts, sculpture, photography, performance art, writing or video) inspired by their surroundings and shared at the end of the residency. Artists immerse themselves in their own practice during Prince Edward County’s lush summer season, while also contributing culinary creativity to lively salon style communal dinners. Shared menus will be based on the group’s appetite for preparing what is available locally in late summer. Readings and discussions will probe the creative intersection of food and art, and guest talks will help us better understand the magic and inspiration created by making and sharing art and food. Alchemy is programmed and co-facilitated by two strong advocates for these ideas:

Claire M. Tallarico is a trained chef, urban gardener and mixed media visual artist passionate about exploring and documenting the intersection between creative practice and food.

Tonia Di Risio is a visual artist and artisanal pasta maker. Her work has developed through ongoing investigations of the growing, making, preserving, celebrating, and sharing of food.

Alchemy participants will live and work in neighboring farmhouses located in a quiet corner of the country called Hillier. Barns, fields, porches and gardens will accommodate creative workspace. Our location boasts hundred of acres to explore and access to the Millennium Trail. The “County” is known for its strong agricultural roots, a thriving arts and cultural community, outstanding natural beauty and farm to table cuisine.
