Whereas many galleries and art centers often serve food at the opening receptions of their shows, Covington's Carnegie Galleries have had quite a bit of success going one step further — actually staging an annual group show about what we eat. It's called The Art of Food, and this year's edition begins with a Friday night gala event on March 2 and then continues through April 13. For the sixth edition of this popular exhibition, the Carnegie will offer food-inspired artwork by Leah Busch, Jeffrey Hayes, Matt Kotlarczyk, Pam Kravetz, Sara Pearce, Jacquelyn Sommer and many more. The 6-9 p.m. Friday reception features art-inspired foodstuff from area chefs and costs $50 in advance for non-members, $35 for Carnegie members ($10 increase in price at the door). Advance tickets are available through the Carnegie box office, at www.thecarnegie.com or by phone at 859-957-1940. After Friday night, admission to the galleries is free.
