Look at it this way: If your plate is loaded with whimsy, perhaps you'll be less likely to cover that whimsy up with a load of food. Call it decorative painting as diet aid! You'll see plates, plus other examples of embellished objects (and a few paintings, such as this one by Pat Otto), by members of the Nature Coast Decorative Artists at Pasco-Hernando Community College's Art Gallery through Dec. 10. It's on display in the library on the west campus, 10230 Ridge Road, New Port Richey. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday. Free. (727) 816-3229.
