For the upcoming exhibition Artists in the Kitchen at the Textile Center of Minnesota, Brenda Langton arranged this fall harvest in collaboration with local portrait artist Shelly Mosman. Along with a recipe, this photo will be featured in WHISKED: Cooking Up Community; a cookbook featuring local chefs/restauranteurs and artists.  The cookbook will be available at the Textile Center’s exhibition and all proceeds will benefit the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota. Shown pictured with this pieces namesake, the Blue Doll Pumpkin, is our friend and farmer Jeffrey Nistler who provided the pumpkin for the photo.
