The Midway presents, Nightfishing, an immersive art & dining experience with artist in resident, painter Isis Hockenos. Isis transforms one of the galleries into a three dimensional, life-sized painting. Isis' paintings dare you to climb inside, to crawl through peacock colored foliage, to smell the lanolin of a freshly sheared, crown-wearing sheep, to taste the meat cut lovingly from the side of a rose-colored hog. Fantasize no longer, guests will be attending a dinner party inside one of her richly colorful and imaginative paintings. Nightfiishing dinners are hosted seasonally and the food is sourced with that sensibility, mostly from Isis' native West Marin community of farmers, cheesemakers and ranchers. Come revel in being a character in an Isis Hockenos painting, titillate your taste buds and expect a healthy dash of surrealist delight.

Ticket price includes wine pairing.

Isis is influenced by the wind and the salt and the craggy shores of her native Northern California coast, while being inspired too by the urban angles of the cities in which she has lived.

Reyes Station, CA and a Resident Artist at The Midway Gallery, San Francisco, CA. Isis has exhibited locally and internationally including at Vorres Gallery, San Francisco, Sandra Lee Gallery, San Francisco, Gallery Route One, Pt. Reyes Station, Sagan Piechota Architecture, San Francisco, Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, Santa Ana, and at Galleri Oxholm, Copenhagen, DK.
