Chauvet Arts Weekly Feature
Our current exhibit, "Edible Dramas: Indulgent Art to Expose the Human Appetite," offers narratives and reflections on human behavior, featuring vivid “portraits” of everything from produce to large-scale subversive jelly donuts. With an underlying anthropomorphic tone, Stewart-Sanabria’s works include jarred cherries swimming in a pool of artificial coloring, crystallized candy competing with baked goods of mysterious coloration, and fruits acting out ancient fertility rites. Occurring in dramatically lit stage settings, these works are intended to inspire reflection on multiple human appetites, and challenge a deeper understanding of them.

Each week our newsletter will spotlight one piece from the current exhibit to provide a more in-depth look at 
Denise Stewart-Sanabria's work.
This Week's Pick:
Artisan Party | Oil on Canvas | 22 x 30 in. | Sold
About the Artwork
Artist Denise Stewart-Sanabria's grandfather immigrated from London with his parents at the turn of the 20th Century. At the start of the Great Depression, he found himself out of work with three children and only a 6th-grade education. After a family friend got him a union job at a large commercial bakery, he eventually became the foreman of the donut room for decades -- inspiring much of Stewart-Sanabria's future work. 
About the Artist
Denise Stewart-Sanabria was born in Massachusetts and received her BFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst. She has lived in Knoxville, TN since 1986 and is a recipient of the 2019 Tennessee Arts Commission Individual Artist Grant for her work on wood.
