Hilton Head ~ Come to the Table: A Celebration of Food & Drink by Denise Liotta DeMarzo

Event Details

Come to the Table is an exhibit of over 30 paintings by Denise Liotta DeMarzo, a lifelong New Yorker who recently relocated to Hilton Head. Denise was a critical care nurse and then an attorney before taking up her lifelong dream of painting. The artwork depicts food and drink and represents her work in the still-life genre.

The exhibit showcases representational still-life paintings in the classical style. It features common objects, mainly food and drink, including kitchen vignettes with pie ingredients, sumptuous foods/wine, fruit arrangements, and inviting cocktails. The pieces are timeless and are all painted from real set-ups, not photos. “I strive for a calm mood and beautiful colors,” says DeMarzo and “…aim to leave room for the viewer’s emotion.”

Denise studies with Jon deMartin, a classically trained artist and teacher, and Todd Casey, a still-life painter and author, both renowned in the New York art world.  Her work has been exhibited both locally and in White Plains, NY.

An artist’s demonstration will be held on Friday, June 23, 11 am-12 pm. The exhibit, reception, and demo are all free and open to the public.
