Dovetail Culinary Experience and Exhibition
Vaccination Required – Eating indoors in our gallery – Limited guests per hour – Advance tickets are required (no walk-ups)
The dovetail joint is an ancient carpentry technique that predates written history. The technique, while simplistic, is extraordinarily strong, aesthetically elegant, and can provide the structural framework for anything from a wooden drawer to an entire building.
For this exhibition, the dovetail joint functions as a metaphor for exploring the work of collaborative makers. While the effort of collaboration can be simple or (more often) complex, when we create in reciprocity, the results can express extraordinary frameworks for stronger, more elegant ways of being, thinking, and appreciating together.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Intersect is excited to present a culinary experience that pairs artworks from the exhibition with hors d’Oeuvres, pastries, and drinks created by local chef, Tai Davis. Gallery capacity will be limited to 50 guests per hour, and vaccination is required to attend. Tickets include admission to the Dovetail exhibition, 4 hors d’Oeuvres, 1 pastry, and 1 non-alcoholic drink and are available to purchase for $20 with an optional alcohol drink ticket for $10. Pay-what-you-wish tickets are available to EBT card holders, Intersect studio artists, and students.
This event is part of a larger series of programs at Intersect Arts Center that include partnerships with local chefs and culinary artists, musicians from the St. Louis Symphony, Leverage Dance Theater, and many others to create responsive interdisciplinary experiences that are accessible and inclusive of a very diverse audience.
