OAKHURST – The public is invited once again to Gaze and Graze at Timberline Gallery’s Celebration of Tasteful Art. The show is in its second week, and this Saturday, July 25, from 2 – 4 p.m., there’s a reception featuring a selection of delightful local restaurants serving treats alongside the fabulous renderings of their fine foods.
Tasteful Art is a collaboration between 16 artists and 16 local restaurants, resulting in a feast for the sensibilities as well as the palate. The second of three receptions is this weekend. Participating restaurants provide the food; the gallery offers the ambiance and the art.
This Saturday the featured restaurants and artists are Taste of China with Francis Ades, Sweetwater with De Sheldon, Pops with Raymond McGee, Alice’s Cookhouse BBQ with Vivian Helena, and El Cid with David Caris.
Appetizers offered by each restaurant will help celebrate the special exhibit.
If last week’s show is any indication, gallery-goers will have a great time once again. According to organizers, last week some 80-90 people attended and were delighted with the exhibition.
“Most stayed and chatted, and enjoyed the music and Japanese floral arrangements by Patti Hummel, and the food was delicious,” says Vivian Helena. “Restaurants are out-doing themselves, and we greatly appreciate it.”
Terry Hummel will be playing his guitar again this Saturday as the reception continues this Saturday from 2 – 4 p.m.
