The Bacon Show is up at Mew Gallery in South Philadelphia!
The Bacon show celebrates the glory of bacon. It may be common knowledge that bacon, the candy of meats, is the new black. That's no reason to miss this small but impressive exhibit of fun bacon art. The Bacon Show is at Mew Gallery in Philadelphia and it includes ten artists, including 4 of the meatartists.com artists!
The exhibit spans fine art painting, photography, and drawing as well as impressive kitschy crafts that will make you realized you've been missing out on the glory of bacon until now. It will also make you realize your holiday gift-giving doldrums are over! The show is fun, the show is affordable! Anything else would be a disgrace to bacon, which should never be disrespected!
