The following description is hand-written on the back of the paper: "For the place, see Avocado, California. For the music album, see Pearl Jam (album). Persea americana, or the avocado, is believed to have originated in the state of Puebla, Mexico, though fossil evidence suggests similar species were much more widespread millions of years ago, occurring as far north as California at a time when the climate of that region was more hospitable to them. The fruit has a markedly higher fat content than most other fruit, mostly monounsaturated fat, and as such serves as an important staple in the diet of various groups where access to other fatty foods is limited." This work is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Jackie

You don’t have to know the discourse of art history to enjoy Jackie Graham’s tasty watercolors. Her mom’s prowess in the kitchen (and famous blackberry pie) inspired an appreciation for all things culinary and a life-long sweet tooth. While most mothers implore their kids to not play with food, that is in fact what Jackie’s work is all about: food play. From ice cream cones to hot dogs to pop tarts, you can’t help but salivate over her renditions of iconic American cuisine. Fun fact: Handwritten on the back of each piece you’ll find the title and several sentences about the history of the subject. Ever wonder about the origins of the Pop-Tart? Probably not, but now you might.
