The Washington Art Association will open "Art and Food" with a reception May 17 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The show, which will run through June 14, will feature the works of art that accompany the recipes in the cookbook "Art and Food," which celebrates the community and the gallery's 60-plus years of serving the art scene.

The reception will feature samples of several of the recipes in the cookbook.

The gallery in Bryan Plaza is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
