Chocolate Party: Art made from Chocolate with a Techy Twist



Finally you can have your ART and eat it too! Join us for our Chocolate Party with Chocolate Hackers on Saturday, March 24th, 1:30-3:30pm and see a work of art made up of  “pixels of chocolate” and their Gaming Egg just in time for Easter. 
 
For just $8+tax you can experience for yourself the unique flavours of their chocolate made with the finest chocolate of Madagascar as well as cute chocolate bars that are naturally colored and flavored with REAL fruits & flowers. Buy tickets in advance at Argyle Fine Art or drop by the day of for the tastings. Limited tickets will be sold, so best to reserve ahead of time at 902-425-9456 or emailing us at gallery@argylefa.com  

Meet the makers Cecile and Stan Mozoluk and learn all about their products and process. They will be chatting a bit about what makes their chocolate different from others!

 The chocolate painting will be on display in our gallery windows from March 23rd-March 29th. It will also be for sale, along with some other bars and treats egg-specially for Easter.  We don't have a sneak peek at it yet...but can hardly wait!
Upon meeting the Chocolate Hackers, of course, we wondered was there a connection to computers and technology? In this era of Minecraft , we found it interesting they are using blocks of coloured chocolate much like in digital imaging, with pixels which are  minute area of illumination on a display screen, one of many from which an image is composed.

“We take our inspiration from the challenges of modern technologies. With the emergence of data and AI, a revolution is coming that will affect our jobs, our lives. When robots are threatening to think, create, write better than we do, we just want to seek for happiness & fulfilment in making. Something real, shaped with our hands. Avid chocolate & food lovers, we’ve created Chocolate Hackers to express ourselves with our favorite material chocolate, willing to reconnect innovation & nature.”



So make sure to HOP on over next Saturday to pick up some Easter treats, cards, lots of new art and more – all by local artists.

We’ll also have our annual Easter Egg art hunt, within the gallery where we hide eggs with special treats and one BIG egg with a $50 gift certificate inside.
