In our fifth show of the “Art and Sustainability” series at Sightline Institute, we present our first exhibit of photography: “What Feeds Us” by Sally Shintaffer and Poppy Barach. Both visually stunning and sensually mouth-watering, eighteen of their photographs are now on view through the end of February. Come take a look and see if you don’t want to start browsing the seed catalogs and plan a garden for harvesting your own fresh, organic produce this year.
Sally and Poppy are best known for their Seattle blog called Mixed Greens: Stepping Lightly, Living Locally and Sustainably in which they each write about and share their gorgeous photographs of food, the garden, and sustainability. They emphasize local, seasonal, whole foods and provide recipes as well.
To view their art at Sightline, visit the office between 10am and 3pm on weekdays through the end of February. Their photos are printed on eco-friendly paper made with mulberry fiber. Contact Poppy or Sally (poppy (at) mixedgreensblog (dot) com or sally (at) mixedgreensblog (dot) com) if interested in purchasing a photograph, framed or unframed. Large photos are available in smaller sizes.
