Watercolors by Sharon Gerber will be on display during an open house hosted by Ettore’s European Bakery.

Open house to showcase paintings of Ettore’s baked delights

Published: Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 - 1:41 pm

Some might say the daily delights at Ettore’s European Bakery are in themselves works of art. But the bakery didn’t stop with edible art.

Fourteen watercolors commissioned by the bakery for its production facility by artist Sharon Gerber, depict fruits, patries, cakes and coffee. She says the subject matter draws upon items sold by Ettore or the ingredients they’re made from.

To celebrate the installation of the artwork, Ettore’s is hosting an open house in two parts at its production facility, 931 Enterprise Dr., Sacramento. The bakery will provide treats 8-10 a.m. Wednesday and 4-6 p.m. Thursday.

You can RSVP if you plan to attend,
