Featuring fourteen vintage baking-related items painted specifically for this show.
 
                               

 

Specifically for this show, and atypically, Kigel has painted a series of vintage, baking-related items that compliment David Atwaterís traditional bakery fare.  If you like nostalgia, this show is for you.  Kigelís watercolors include images of a 1930ís yellow-ware bowl with a blue band, an interpretive series of a 1940ís Sunbeam Mixer with its airplane-designed face and tail, and a 1950ís set of primary-color Pyrex nesting bowls.  In addition visitors will find a depiction of a Spee-dee drink-mixer, a set of tin cookie cutters, and the trademark Pillsbury Dough Boy.   Did you know that even in 1947, the Sunbeam Mixmasterís attachments could peel apples, churn butter, grind coffee, polish silver, and sharpen knives?  Have you seen the thee bears as nesting, tin cookie cutters?  A red and blue Zenith egg grader?  A cast-iron parrot bottle-opener?  Do you remember the Depression-glass nut chopper with aluminum cover and red-wood knob?  These nostalgic kitchen tools are on view at The Bakery from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM Tuesdays through Saturdays.  Come view the paintings and sample an assortment of pastries, scones, muffins, cookies, and breads, with New England coffee, and order specialty cakes and pies to go.

Kigel lives in Waldoboro and shows extensively on the East Coast.   FMI  call The Bakery  563-BUNS [2867] or visit www.jeankigel.com.
