Barbara Shark Book Signing

Wednesday June 20 – 5:30-7:30pm

Join BMoCA and Barbara Shark for a signing of her newly published memoir, How I Learned To Cook, An Artist’s Life.

How I Learned to Cook, An Artist’s Life is the story of a Midwestern girl growing up in the 1950s and 60s to become a painter and the resident cook and den mother for a band of artists from around the U.S.. Betty Woodman, Red Grooms, Robert Kushner and Don Ed Hardy are among those who come to the Colorado studio of Shark’s Ink to collaborate on making prints with Master Printer and print guru, Bud Shark, and to eat at the table of artist/cook Barbara Shark. With paintings by Barbara and recipes from her culinary adventures, How I Learned to Cook tells a tale of a woman finding her way in the complicated world of art and domestic life.

How I Learned to Cook, An Artist’s Life contains reproductions of 85 paintings and drawings and 105 recipes.
