Only in Santa Fe?

The other night, we attended an art opening at the Skotia Gallery in downtown Santa Fe. The show, entitled "Naked", features a number of well-known contemporary figurative painters, and some of the paintings were quite impressive.

This young woman was lying supine on a table in the center of the second floor gallery space, covered with vegan sushi and naturally-sweetened chocolate from "Body", a famous Santa Fe natural foods restaurant and spa.

The juxtaposition of art and food was fun, and everyone in attendance (well, almost everyone) was quite respectful of the young woman's vulnerable position, offering her grapes and gratitude for her sacrifice for the sake of art. Marcel Duchamp may have appreciated this somewhat Dadaist affair.
