...for 3 months, starting in September 2022

St. Mary's Episcopal Church has added a new featured artist gallery in the historic Parish Hall and I am excited to be invited to display in their first year! The art will be displayed starting on September 1 through November 30, 2022.


The St. Mary's art committee has invited me to present an artist's talk / pie demonstration on Sunday, October 16, following the service at approximately 11 am in the Parish Hall. I will be demonstrating how to make pie crust and a blueberry pie and discussing my journey with Pie and Art, test-baking, writing and illustrating a cookbook. The lucky audience will also get to taste that pie!


On Friday, September 2nd from 5-7pm there will be an artist open house - in conjunction with First Fridays. Join me for a fun evening of pie samples, wine, pie art and friends. You will also be able to purchase cookbooks, prints, original art and pie stationary at the event.
