Nancy Abel — A Thankful Table
Ongoing show

A Thankful Table is a commissioned series of work at Sushi Joa restaurant on Mercer Island. This group of seven images combine historical photos taken at the Wing Luke Museum’s Freeman Hotel, a well preserved historic landmark built in 1910 by early Chinese pioneers. The building served as a cultural hub with shops and living quarters for hundreds of immigrants during the pre-World War era. Along with modern table top landscapes taken in Hawaii with contemporary kitchen items, these images reflect meals with family, the warmth of the day, and the sweetness of life and a juxtaposition of everyday life 100 years between.

“These were humble surroundings—hotel rooms, and kitchens with everyday objects… dinnerware, table settings, pots and pans, small simple bedrooms and clothing. I’m reminded to take a closer look at what surrounds me and remember to be grateful everyday.” — N. Abel
