Overabundance of Detail Showcases Cake Art at an Entirely New Level

Attention to detail results in breathtaking pieces to be shown at BPAC

 Overabundance of Detail, an exhibition in the Sylvia L. Rosen and Charles Cary Rumsey Galleries at Burchfield Penney Art Center is on view from February 12 through July 3, with an opening reception on Friday, February 11 from 5:30-7:30p.m. The show focuses on artists who create intricate visuals by focusing on small changes in content and form. 

Works range from paintings and drawings to metal sculpture and cake design. Each piece demonstrates the minute intricacies found in a variety of twenty-first century art forms.

Carolyn Scott Panzica is one of the less traditional artists you'll find in this show. The well-known pastry chef, who owns the Chocolate Bar on Chippewa, has been designing cakes for twenty years. “I felt that there was much more that I wanted to explore than what has previously been done with this medium,” Panzica says. “I enjoy making something fluid and beautiful as well as permanent out of a material which is normally not considered for this type of project. Sugar is usually temporary, disposable or at least edible. I enjoy finding new ways to create color and dimension in small detail.” 

Overabundance of Detail  is all about artists who pay attention to the small things to create magnificent pieces of work. Don't miss it.
