Delicious is the second annual group show of art inspired by food and drink at STUDIO Gallery. Work from over 60 local artists will be on display, including everything from functional pieces and sculpture to work for the wall, from traditional still lives and landscapes of Bay Area vineyards and organic gardens to more humorous pieces from the likes of Brian Behnke, Ayu Tomikawa, Bill Dunlap, Lola, and Dave Higgins.

There are lots of small, affordable pieces in the show, as well as a number of striking larger works. Opening reception is Saturday, from 4-8 pm. The show runs from, March 1st through Sunday, April 2nd.
