Calling all foodies! How would you like to visit an artist’s studio and show your kids a great time?
You are invited to the annual Oreo Cookie Contest at the Open Studio of artist Beverly Shipko, who is known for painting cookies, cakes and mouth-watering desserts.
This event will be held at 36 Sheldon Street in Ardsley, NY. It is part of the 22nd Annual RiverArts Studio Tour on Saturday, April 25th and Sunday, 26th from 11-5 pm.
Come and take a bite out of an Oreo to enter! It’s that simple. Shipko paints the winning Oreo and names the oil painting after the biter since it’s their “portrait”, albeit an unconventional one.
This is a family-friendly way to expose your kids to art and have fun at the same time. After all, who doesn’t like desserts? Read more about previous Oreo Contest art at www.beverlyshipko.com.
Specializing in painting luscious, gooey desserts, the artist will also serve up her favorite cakes, pies and tarts from Riviera Bakehouse in Ardsley. Shipko has been painting desserts for over a decade and has exhibited at OK Harris in Soho and museums around the country.
RiverArts Studio Tour features over 60 artists in Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings and Irvington who will open their studios to the public and exhibit a wide variety of media including ceramics, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Maps will be provided so you can easily visit other participating artists, or you can go to www.riverarts.com to access the interactive map.
