Dont judge us because it took the promise of cinnamon raisin bread doused in margarine to bring us to church for Sunday school each weekend. And dont look at us funny when were driving and suddenly hit the brakes, careening into the Krispy Kreme parking lot. The hot light was on, dammit, and we cant ignore the call of a warm, chewy heart attack. In fact, were a sucker for anything that even resembles something that could have floated out of Grandmommys kitchen. O.H.W.O.W. gallery, a New York import that rocked Art Basel with nonstop avant-garde showings, is marrying two of our favorite vices at Confection, its Charity Bake Sale Art Exhibition. Culture-phile and purveyor of all that is dope, Pres Rodriguez is uniting more than 20 local artists who are in turn contributing their creative goodies to the collective. Waterford Landing, Dino Felipe, and the Remote Controllers will be on hand to provide the soundtrack as you enjoy the artful offerings.
We know youre asking, What about those baked goods? Theyll be around. Sprinkled, iced, filled with caramel, oozing strawberry jelly, and dipped in fudge. Oh, theyll be around. And when you buy em, youll be supporting the Daily Bread Food Bank.
