In the Gallery: Fancy Mud Pies

The Castle in the Air gallery kicks off 2011 with "Fancy Mud Pies," a collection of deliciously strange paintings by Cleo Papanikolas.

We're finishing the hanging of the exhibit now, and the paintin
gs are simply amazing. Cleo combines her twin loves of fauna and food in her compositions, which juxtapose birds, cake, deer, Jell-O, and soil in dessert-plate fantasy lands.

Join Cleo Papanikolas and all of us for an evening of art, wine,
and yes, dessert, the evening of Tuesday, February 8, as we celebrate the unveiling of "Fancy Mud Pies."

I think you are the first to see it! I haven't got a copy yet and I'm in Germany now. I'd have heard if they had seen it at the shop. Fun!

I can't wait to catch up on your work and see what you have been up to.
