You've likely spied her work gracing the menus, coasters and even walls at culinary hot-spots Hubert and Alberto's. Now, see Sydney linocut print artist Allie Webb (and Swillhouse Group art director) embrace foodie culture from a different angle, with her solo exhibition A Midsummer's Night.

Hitting Surry Hills' China Heights Gallery from Friday, March 15 to Saturday, March 23, the showcase of bold, black linocuts pulls inspiration from a recent jaunt to Italy, and memories of lazy feasting sessions on balmy Roman nights. It's an exploration of modern daily life, with shared experiences around the dining table at its core. Elements pulled from pop, German Expressionism and momento mori still-life paintings are used to embrace the many rituals we associate with food.

Oh, and you might want to book somewhere for a feed after you visit the exhibition — capturing motifs like overflowing fruit baskets, heaving bowls of pasta and bottles of vino, this one's sure to inspire an appetite.

Opening night runs from 6–8pm on March 15, with the exhibition open daily from 12–5pm afterwards.
