What is a Peeps Show, you may ask? It consists of a series of dioramas made from the brightly colored peeps candies that appear every year around Easter.  Last year over thirty exhibits were included in the show.  They ranged from Black Eyed Peeps and Corn Bread to Peep Seeger, Little Bo Peep and her Lambs, and a baby who Peeped in his pants.

So many artists have asked to join in this exhibition that the gallery is opening it to the public as a fund-raiser.  Artists will be able to submit two dioramas.  All entries will be accepted.  If the numbers submitted exceed the space allotted, the additional works of Peeps art will continue into another venue in the town.

Peeps are those iconic candy figures that appear every Easter.  They come in a variety of colors in forms of chicks and rabbits.  The gallery has joined with many others around the country to present wall hangings and dioramas that feature these Peeps.  Peeps lend themselves to visual puns.  Last year we featured: The Pied Peeper, Peep Seeger, Black-eyed Peeps and Ham, Peeps on Safari along with several dozen others.  This is a popular exhibit that has drawn more than a thousand visitors to the gallery.

The exhibit ends on Sunday, March 24, 2013.

All Peep dioramas must be picked up by Monday, March 25, 2013 4pm or they will be discarded.
