“Sugar Is Art” event in Nashville TN March 8th 2009

7 Jan

Since we are all about Sugar I thought I would share the info about an upcoming Sugar is Art event that is coming soon in Nashville TN. I am so excited about it. I have always been all about Sugar and what can be done with it, and when I found about this event I thought this is it. I am sure it will be a great time and I am trying to figure out what I should create to showcase at this event. The Creator/Owner of this event is Melissa and after hanging out on her blog I felt as if she was the ultimate Sugar Friend. She is all about everything Sugar and I could so relate with her. If you are interested in attending this event check out the following information as well as Melissa’s Blog http://www.gabesgurlep.blogspot.com  which will give you a clearer picture into what this event is all about.

Sugar artists, foodies, and lovers of all things sweet, rejoice! Gabe’s Gurl Event Productions, a fresh new boutique trade show and consumer event producer specializing in the food and culinary industry, is pleased to announce the launch of the 2009 Sugar Is Art Gallery, a sweet celebration of the art of sugar. This unique new event will makes its debut on Sunday, March 8, 12pm, at the Cannery Ballroom in downtown Nashville, with the theme “Glitz, Glam, and Gumpaste”. The Gallery was designed to bring together, challenge, and showcase the amazing talents and skills of custom cake designers, chocolatiers, pastry professionals, sugar artists, fashion designers, sculptors, and bakers, both professional and enthusiasts, and the stunning and delicious products and treats they create. This one-day event will allow attendees to experience the vivid sights, intoxicating aromas, and exquisite tastes of luscious confections, chocolates, and gourmet cakes. There will be beautiful works of edible art for perusing, an amazing Dessert Bar for sampling, a decorating station for creating, and a Gallery boutique for browsing.


Because everyone at Gabe’s Gurl Event Productions and the 2009 Sugar Is Art Gallery strongly believe that having delicious, freshly prepared food is a human RIGHT and not a privilege, we ask that Gallery supporters, sponsors, and attendees join us in a food drive to help Nashville’s food banks provide assistance to those in need during hard times. Your donations are in high demand right now, and it is your generosity as a business community and as an industry that will make the difference for so many women, men, and children, our neighbors. While we feel certain that our economy will soon rebound, the emotional, physical, and mental effects of hunger, and more seriously, starvation, are lasting. We cannot ignore the plight of those whose times may be a little harder than ours, and we ask that we all work together to do what we can to fight it. Our simple request is that every guest please bring two (2) non-perishable items to donate at the door on event day!


Everyone aged 14+ is invited to experience the Gallery, and tickets are on sale now. Custom created works of sugar art can be entered by submitting the registration form and fee. Exhibits (booths) and sponsorships are available, and attendees can park free, enter to win giveaways, purchase and decorate their own edible art, and vote for their favorite display in the Gallery Choice Awards. You are invited to get involved, and help make the Gallery a success! For details, participation forms, volunteer and sponsor opportunities, and more, visit the Sugar Is Art Gallery online and the Gallery blog for the latest information. We also invite you to stay tuned to Gabe’s Gurl Event Productions for more fabulous culinary events, shows, excursions, tastings, and fests in 2009.  Enjoy dessert tonight!

    Hi, I’m interested in finding a class for me and my daughter. We’ve had Wilton classes and need something more advanced, especially in gum paste. Do you offer classes? Thanks, Carolyn Evans
