Goldberg organizes art for charity

By Jacqueline Trescott

Margery Goldberg, the longtime director of Zenith Gallery, has kept curating art shows since her Seventh Street gallery closed in 2009. And she continues her tradition of using art to raise money for local charities.

On Wednesday night, Goldberg has organized through the Zenith Community Arts Foundation, a nonprofit she founded in 2000, an auction and event, called "Food Glorious Food" to raise money for the Capital Area Food Bank.

Around the terrace level of the Embassy Suites Hotel at Chevy Chase Pavilion at Friendship Heights will be food from local chefs, art from a variety of artists and a 2011 calendar that combines both.

Artists include Steven Hansen, who contributed a comical tableau of cooks; Bill Mead with a giant tomato by a stream; James Tormey with a trio of outsized pears and Philip Hazard's neon "Eat Green " sign superimposed over some veggies.

Recipes for the calendar, as well as tastings on Wednesday, are promised from Austin Grill, 701, Black Salt, Policy and Citronelle and Central, among the popular restaurants.

The opening event from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m costs $80 and the calendar $20.

In the past 5 years the event has raised $115,000 for the food bank.
