'Sweet Tooth' - and art exhibit at Gallery Z

Once upon a time I had what we like to refer to as 'free time'. When I could, I would take a painting class from renowned french artist  David Gista. David owns a gallery in Glencoe and had mentioned to me the idea of doing a show based on food. He was familiar with my cookies and asked if I wanted to participate in the opening. Well, the show opened last night and, what a blast! The show featured artists Aviva Ginsberg and Ron Pollack.

The show went great. I made a lot of new contacts and I LOVED making what I wanted to make. This was a little more creative than I've been able to get for a little while and I loved it. I made 5 showcase cookies, samples for the crowd and then of course some other sweets for everyone to enjoy, a delicious candied nut mix and chocolate drizzled cereal treats. Please enjoy the show and feel free to leave any comments!
