A Gala Evening, Art, Bubbly & Cake

A fantastic fun evening, huge crowd - electric atmosphere.....most of the art sold ! All for charity.
After all enjoyed some bubbly...champagne and wine, and got to meet the artists and chefs who were paired together to inspire each other..... a signal was given to ask to have a slice of any or all cakes. I only wish I could have eaten every one. - 10 in all... no one went home hungry or empty handed... a great party.
Picture This Gallery on Hilton Head Island S.C. The event idea and success belongs to Mira Scott owner and artist. Electric !...the place to be and be seen on Nov 19th.....

Art , Bubbly & Cake - red carpet too

ART, BUBBLY & CAKE - November 19th, 6-8pm
Hilton Head Island, SC
10 celebrity artists and 10 celebrity chefs will pair up for the evening to benefit the Island School of the Arts and the Gullah Museum. The chefs will create a unique cake based on the painting or creation of a cake by the artists and all will be auctioned at a fabulous red carpet (for real) event.
Tickets are $25.00 each.

I am one of the artists....my entry "Behind the Scene" a deconstructed cake is a collage of wrappers and a collection of old recipes with handmade paper of course. It was more difficult then I thought and a very interesting fun original idea by gallery owner Mira Scott.

the beginnings of my celebration cake

rough placement of wrappers --- still pushing all sorts of scraps and pieces around.
