Satisfy your sweet tooth at the Cheri Blackerby Gallery for “How the Cookie Crumbles”, a delectable exhibition featuring drawing, painting, poetry, sculpture, and contemporary cookie jars and teapots by more than thirty artists from The Studio.

The cookie jar is no longer merely a treasured object of the past, a tchotchke in your grandmother’s kitchen, or a dusty relic at the flea market. As an art form, the cookie jar and the teapot represent a culmination of aesthetics, design, and function. Styles range from traditional and functional to whimsical and sculptural.

Ceramic cookie jars and teapots are imaginatively explored in “How the Cookie Crumbles”, from cartoon characters like Ardi Areson’s “Peter Cottontail”, David Caylor’s “The Grinch” and Gaylord Divine’s “Wall- E”, to a zombie squirrel teapot “Chubbs”, by Elisabeth Roberson.

Artist Chris Johnson explores an iconic event in American history, the Boston Tea Party, in an acrylic painting of the Grand Union Flag. Theresa Fisher’s “Waffle” pattern celebrates the minimal design of the Eggo, and Geraldine Sadler paints a portrait of a Bakery Chef.

Enjoy fresh baked cookies prepared for this special event by the Studio’s Culinary Arts class during Arts Alive!
