What's On Your Plate? 

A series by local South Carolina Artist, Angela Hughes Zokan

Sliced Tomatoes

12"X12", Acrylic on Canvas

If you don’t love tomatoes, I don’t think that we can be friends. I mean between sauce, pies, sandwiches and caprese salads - what's not to love? Especially in the summer! 

My mother-in-law has a favorite person she buys her tomatoes from every year, Mr. Bubba. Since I have known her the past couple of years, she always makes a special trip to buy some of his tomatoes. It has been a tradition of hers and many others for years. Although Mr. Bubba passed away this past year, his legacy is living on through his son who is now growing tomatoes using all of the skills passed down from his late father. I love how something as “seemingly” simple as growing tomatoes brings people together and honors those we have lost. 

Ps. That beautiful plate and those fun blue and white napkins can be purchased from McIntosh Cottage!

About the Collection: A Note From the Artist

The most precious memories and conversations happen around the table with a meal, a melted popsicle or a couple of slices of leftover bacon in the toaster oven. Hey, when you know you know! These meals do not have to be over the top (although I do love a gourmet dish), but oftentimes are the simplest, with the most significance.  

I find that more and more I draw connections to people through different foods, flavors, and scents. When I prepare a meal, snack, or even beverage for myself or my family I am reminded of who I shared these with in the past. These memories have become more and more precious as people I have loved, respected, and cherished have moved on…or even started to grow up.

This series of paintings may seem simple, or reminiscent of pop art ideals; but, for me, they focus more on connections. Connections to people, cultures, seasons, experiences and keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts. This “plate” series will be released every Friday for the next couple of months through McIntosh Cottage Antiques.

Part 4: Summer's Bounty

This is the final installation of the “What’s on your plate?” series… for now. These plates are filled with local fruits and vegetables arranged on the most beautiful McIntosh Antiques and Gifts plates and fabrics. These next pieces will incorporate the best that summer has to offer and what you will find on my plates most nights of summer.
