A very Sweet art show at the Elliott Museum

The last day of the Sweet! art exhibit was this past Sunday so if you missed it then you really missed out. 

Located at the Elliott Museum in the changing exhibitions gallery, Sweet! was a food and drink themed juried art exhibition featuring artists from all over the state of Florida.

We were asked not to take pictures of the artwork so I respectfully complied but here is a shot of the crowd viewing the exhibit on opening night. The turnout was fantastic and everyone really seemed to enjoy the food and the art!

I was, however, allowed to take pictures of my own work. This is a sculpture of a cow I made from upcycled dairy containers...

...and I used milk crates for the pedestal.

These are actual cakes made by a local baker, The Cake Lady, located in Fort Pierce. Free samples were generously given to patrons. There was also lots of other cakes and edible goodies donated by the sponsor of the show, Publix Super Markets.

The Elliott Museum did a wonderful job of putting together this fabulous art show. This exhibit is now over but the permanent exhibits are absolutely worth exploring. They have a huge collection of vintage cars as well as several other galleries that have displays ranging from vintage baseball cards to old voting booths.
