Designing Chocolate

… exhibiting at the Buck’s County Chocolate Show in New Hope, Pennsylvania

The Journey of the Pod, 2008  

a poster led to an exhibit

A few weeks back I received an email announcing a call for an open submission to a poster contest. Ordinarily I would’ve passed on it figuring I didn’t have the time. But something about this peaked my interest.                                                                                                       It was the word, chocolate.                                                                                                     Those of you who know me would not be surprised why this word is so special. I’ve spent years studying and exploring the history of this magnificent commodity that is so richly woven into our culture.

After Godiva and FarCoast, once again the call for art was knocking and I wasn’t about to pass up the chance to experience another journey with this little pod. My mentor always said do what you love and it finds you. So I designed a poster and sent it off. (I must admit just doing art for art’s sake was amazing.)

About 2 weeks later I received an email notifying me that indeed I was being considered for the winning entry, and would be granted the privilege if I agreed to exhibit the original pieces that made up the components of the digital collage at the chocolate show. Who could resist the offer? …. getting to spend time with two of my passions, art and chocolate.                                                                                                     Hope you’ll join me in the fun. If not, check back in for the highlights.                                                                                                                                                                                     Ciao,                                                                                                                                  Michele
