Kam's features the work of local artists on its walls on a rotating basis. The art is changed every several weeks, and a broad range of media and subject matter is presented. An opening reception is held for each artist so the local community can meet the artist and see his or her work. Announcements of the openings are posted on this website and sent by email.

Name of the Exhibit: DELISH! - a “buffet” of fresh, new artwork by Diane Gelman
My artwork is colorful, happy and upbeat. Much of my artwork is about food, since I am inspired by exciting displays of delicious food, which engage all of my senses. I have been focused on food for my entire life: studying about it, writing about it, teaching it, creating it, sculpting it, and painting it. I am uniquely expert at exploring the interplay between art and food because I am both an artist and a Registered, Licensed Dietitian. I started painting with the desire to make artwork about food. I like to create work about food that looks good enough to eat off of the canvas! I have been exploring the concept of food popping off of the canvas literally and figuratively. I hope that my artwork will offer an entire “smorgasboard” of delight and a bounty of food for the soul! I also paint landscapes, people, children, and animals - usually with the addition of interesting collage components.
