Since 2015, this residency has taken place both on the Toronto Islands and in rural Prince Edward County Ontario, Canada. This year, Alchemy Island 2020 is our only traditional programmed residency. Other new activities will be announced shortly.
Selected artists call upon a variety of mediums ranging from visual arts, sculpture, photography, craft, cooking, performance art, writing or video. Artists create and share their work and practice, while also contributing culinary creativity to lively salon style communal dinners.
Readings and discussions probe the creative intersection of food and art. Guest talks from artists, chefs and winemakers help us better understand the magic and inspiration created by making and sharing art and food.
Alchemy is facilitated by two strong advocates for these ideas: Claire M. Tallarico and Tonia Di Risio.
To meet Claire and Tonia and the 50 plus artists who have contributed to our collaborative efforts to date, visit the next section.
