FORT WAYNE, Indiana (Indiana's NewsCenter)--Deb: Tastey..a little bit sparkly..a little kitschy. But it’s a fun show it’s a delectible show.

‘I CAN RESIST ANYTHING EXCEPT TEMTATION’ WROTE OSCAR WILDE. OSCAR WOULD BE RIGHT AT HOME AT ARTLINK GALLERY’S NEW EXHIBITION TITLED ‘JUST DESSERTS’…A CELEBRATION OF THE SENSUAL SINS MOST ALL OF US LOVE SUCCUMBING TO. PHOTOS, SCULPTURES, PAINTINGS AND PRINTS OF FINE DESSERTS…THIS PORTRAIT OF THE PERFECT SUNDAE IS BY FORT WAYNE ARTIST DIANE GROENERT. ‘JUST GELATO’ IS A PHOTOGRAPH BY FORT WAYNE’S CAROL GRIFFIN. FORT WAYNE’S COLLEEN PAINTER DREAMS OF SWEETS…THIS IS HER WORK TITLED ‘A CUPCAKE DREAM’.

SOME SWEETS COME WITHOUT CHOCOLATE OR ICIING OR WHIPPED CREAM. THIS IS CALLED ‘SWEET TEMPTATION’ BY MELISSA VAN CLEAVE. AND ‘HOSPITALITY SWEET’ BY ROBERT EINHOUSE…TREATS THAT TEMPT MANY, LAID BARE.

THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY FOR ALL THIS SWEETNESS, OF COURSE. THIS PHOTO OF DENTAL WORK IS CALLED APPROPRIATELY ‘JUST DESSERTS’, BY OHIO PHOTOGRAPHER SEDER BURNS. AND IF THAT’S NOT WARNING ENOUGH, THIS DISEASED TOOTH IS A WATERCOLOR BY FORT WAYNE’S CORTNEY FETTINGER…TITLED ‘JUST DESSERTS FOR DESSERTS’.

THERE IS SOME REALLY STUNNING STUFF HERE…THIS MOSAIC ICE CREAM CONE IS BY BERNE SCULPTOR MOLLY ANDERSON. AND THIS CERAMIC BY HOLLY DOWIDAT OF ANGOLA IS A HOOT…IT’S CALLED ‘SWEETS, DESSERT PUP’.

LAUGHTER, WE’RE TOLD, IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE. THERE’S ANOTHER TONGUE I WOULD SUGGEST THAT MOST HUMANS ARE EQUALLY FLUENT IN…IT’S CALLED DESSERT. ERIC OLSON OUT IN YOUR COUNTRY.
