The Rockaway Artists Alliance Bake Off
Artists will trade paint brushes and pencils for cake pans and cookie sheets, as the baking arts take center stage at the Rockaway Artists Alliance Bake Off! The first ever bake off coincides with the RAA's Gifted exhibition and promised to liven up the season with an artistic array of entries vying to please the sense of sight, scent and taste.
The event will be held on Saturday, November 22 at 2 p.m. at the sTudio 6 Gallery. There will be a tasting and a raffle. The RAA is looking for a few good bakers and is accepting entries up to November 19. Bake Off contestants will compete in four categories: pies, cakes, cookies and holiday bread. Each category will have two winners: a judges' choice award, and a People's Choice Award. Holiday breads, cookies and pies will be judged on taste. Cakes will be judged on taste and creativity. Entrants can call 718-474-0861 or visit www.rockawayartistsalliance.org for an entry form. There is an entry fee of $5.
Visitors to the Bake Off can also enjoy the RAA's Gifted exhibition. An annual showcase, Gifted 2008, will feature the works of more than 18 artist members in a variety of vibrant media. Gifted will be running in the sTudio 6 Gallery from Saturday, November 15 to Sunday, December 14. The opening reception will be held on Sunday, November 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.
