“Funny Folk Food Show” is a benefit for Good Shepherd Center.
Wilmington painter Candy Pegram may have stumbled upon the perfect food subject, one that all the still-life painters of the Renaissance, with their fancy fruit bowls cascading with delicate grapes and ripe green pears, completely missed: the corn dog.
“I love painting corn dogs,” Pegram wrote in an email. “The general public loves corn dogs as well, I have sold a lot of corn dogs.”
The corn dog is just one of the culinary delicacies featured in the “Funny Folk Food Show,” a duo exhibition of food-themed works by Pegram and fellow food artist/punster Kelly Sweitzer. The light-hearted exhibition is on display at Wabi Sabi Warehouse, 19 N. Ninth St., and opens with a public reception 6-9 p.m. June 22, in coordination with Fourth Friday Gallery Nights. Ten percent of all proceeds benefit the Good Shepherd Center, a local charity
