The Pie-o-neer Pie Shop in Pie Town is not only the home of award winning pies but now hosts Fine Art.
Pie-o-neer proprietors Kathy Knapp and Stan King announce the Grand Opening of their Pie Star Art Gallery on Saturday, Nov. 6 from noon until 6 p.m. Throughout the day Stan King on the upright bass and Michael Robinson on the improvisational guitar will perform musical interludes.
Free samples of pie will be available for anyone visiting the Pie Star Art Gallery which is housed in a bright sunny room off the main dining area. Since its opening in 1995 the Pie-o-neer has been known for its incredibly delectable healthy pies, some organic made with absolutely fresh fruit.
Artists will be on hand to discuss their work. Michael Robinson, born in London, has called Pie Town home for 12 years. His paintings are included in collections at the Guggenheim and Castelli Galleries in New York and his works appear in corporate collections of Philip Morris, Reader’s Digest, CBS and Hermes. He has designed jewelry for Van Cleef & Arpels in New York. The entire natural world is his subject matter: plants, animals, vistas of New Mexico highlands and moonscapes of Jupiter and Saturn illustrate the symbiotic relationship between human and the other forms of life that inhabit this planet.
After retiring from a 30 year career with the California Department of Forestry and 27 years with the U.S. Army John Harrell settled in Pie Town in 2006. He began photographing thunderstorms and went on to wildlife photos on canvas so alive they appear to jump right out at the viewer.
