FROM the great hunting stories of Indigenous tribes to a giant oil-on-canvas hamburger, 'Cuisine and Country' is a smorgasbord of great Australian art.
The exhibition, featuring some of the country's finest artists, will open at Orange Regional Gallery tonight to coincide with the beginning of FOOD Week.
Curator Gavin Wilson said the exhibition included art inspired by colonial picnics, the influence of immigrants on food and social interactions over a meal.
"I thought it was overdue that we looked at Australian artists and how various works have been inspired by food. All these artists are regarded as some of the finest in the country," he said.
The exhibition, funded by the Federal Government's Visions Australia program, will tour 12 venues in 18 months and features artists including Brett Whiteley, Russell Drysdale and William Dobell.
'Cuisine and Country' will show at Orange Regional Gallery until May 20.
