The Cupcakery is hosting a tasting during the opening reception for the Spring Show at Maple and Main Saturday, March 29 which gave the gallery the idea to honor the sweet treat in art.

Artists will be painting informally at the gallery Sunday but some cupcake paintings have already been done and are on display at the gallery. More will be exhibited at the opening.

were the subject matter Sunday when four Maple and Main artists set up a still life of three cupcakes – and a vase of iris. It was so much fun we’re going to do it again this coming Sunday, March 16 and Sunday, March 23.

We want to create enough cupcake paintings by Saturday March 29 for the opening party for our spring show when the Chester Cupcakery will provide a tasting along with Chester Package Store which will host a wine tasting.

 Stop by the gallery on the next two Sundays to visit with the cupcake painters. All our cupcake-themed paintings will be for sale at the opening – and maybe before.
