Mike Geno, a Philadelphia based artist, recreates the same hunger inducing attraction with paint that he finds most appetizing in his food models and is best known for his ongoing series in cheese portraits. With over 50 paintings, explore our upstairs art gallery while sipping on wine and see art imitate life as you sample cheese from local Bay Area creameries. Mike says, "I only paint things that I find attractive and appetizing. I like to translate what I find the most seductive about by subject. And cheese, it turns out, is the absolute perfect match for the way I paint. I get hungry looking at cheese." Mike's paintings are available for purchase.
