Sierra Arts Foundation
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 to Thursday, June 27, 2013
All Month

The Sierra Arts Foundation presents the work of Twinkie artist Nancy Peppin in its gallery, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays 1-5pm, with an artist reception on Friday, June 7 from 5-7pm. In this exhibition, "The Steampunk Machines of Cmdr. T.T. Kidd: Steam Twink", Commander T. T. Kidd demonstrates the use of the Twinkie in a full range of 19th-century futurist mechanisms, each presented in context before a representative watercolor of its environment. The real Twinkies used in the mixed media pieces were purchased on the day that the Hostess Company announced it was going out of business - November 16, 2012.
