WONDER MEALS : A Cabinet of Wonders Group Art Show

For July the imperfecta art & design gallery presents a group show that focuses on the art of wonder, with a twist. The show opens on Saturday July 6, with a reception (5-7pm, with wine tastings by Corcilla Cellars and small bites usherettes by Normitas Cuisine), and runs through July 27. Gallery hours are 11am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. The Gallery is at 117 6th street, Oregon City OR 97045 USA.

In this exhibit, WONDER MEALS, participating artists focused on the art of wonder – “a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.”  The inspiration for the show was Wunderkammer. Cabinets of Curiosities, frequently considered the precursors of modern museums, made their debut during the Renaissance to showcase an array of rare, eclectic, and even esoteric artifacts and objects. These cabinets were all about telling wonderful stories about the world one inhabits – its history, peculiarities, and unique attributes.

Artists were challenged to explore what WONDER means. While free to use any medium and style, their piece had to include a recipe, an ingredient list and had to stay within the size boundary of a 11 inch diameter plate. Artists were also asked to specify where their work would fit in relation to the 4 Wunderkammer categories:

  • Artificialia (e.g. objects created or modified by humans, such as art);
  • Naturalia (e.g. creatures and natural objects – with a particular interest in monsters);
  • Exotica (e.g.  exotic plants and animals); and
  • Scientifica (e.g. scientific instruments).

Participating artists are local as well as international — their artworks will be released on the gallery online catalog on opening day and will be available for purchase. The gallery ships globally.

Attend the opening reception on July 6, 5-7pm, to meet the artists.
