The Soulard Art Market is currently celebrating St. Louis’ 250th birthday with a special exhibit, “Everywhere there’s Cake.” Of course I was at the gallery opening with the whole family, because one of my Cakeway to the West pictures (of the Comptom Hill Water Tower) is part of the exhibit. There was a nice crowd, and it was fun seeing all of the art displayed…mostly photos, but a few other types of art as well.
There was even live music:
And, of course, cake!
The prototype made an appearance:
And outside, there was not only the Barkus Pet Parade cake, but also the final (no really, it is!) cake, not quite complete, but still on display for the night:
I can’t tell you how exciting it was to be a part of that, and to feel like an artist, if only for one evening. The exhibit is open through the first few weeks of January, so if you’d like to stop by and see all of the talent the cakes inspired, you have time!
