The San Antonio Museum of Art will debut Culinary Delights: Photographs by David Halliday in the Focus Gallery. The show will open to the public Sept. 5. Culinary Delights: Photographs by David Halliday is being presented in conjunction with 2009 FotoSeptiembreUSA.
Halliday is nationally acclaimed photographer who lives and works in New Orleans.
Born in Glen Cove New York in 1958, Halliday moved to New Orleans in the early 1990s to take a job as a chef. His keen eye for formal relationships steered him in a different direction, however, and since 1992 he has been exhibiting photographs of people, places, and things. Although he has produced many landscape and portrait images, this exhibition focuses on his still life compositions using food, an appropriate subject for an artist who began his career as a chef.
In conjunction with Culinary Delights, SAMA will host a Family Day on
Sept. 6, from 1 - 5 p.m. For more information on Culinary Delights, the contemporary art collection at SAMA, and a complete list of events and exhibitions open to the public, visit samuseum.org
