Donuts by Sarah Hull

While we're on the subject of arts venues stuffed for the holidays, let us not miss two food-centric shows at the Morean Arts Center, two blocks west of Florida Craftsmen Gallery. "Season's Eatings" is the annual members' exhibition designed for gift-giving and almost every one-of-a-kind item is related to eating. There are, of course, many functional ceramics and still-life paintings and prints. Jewelry gets in on the banquet, too, with earrings, for example, of tiny silver spoons. There are also charming and hilarious works that reference food culture. You can spend a lot or a little for something unique. Bon appetit.

In another gallery, a curated show, "Stuffed," features artists Patricia Schnall Gutierrez, Michaelene Walsh, Tim Tate, Lou Haney, Rebecca Sittler and the late Meredith Allen. You'll leave craving doughnuts, dripping ice cream bars and cupcakes.

The Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave., St. Petersburg is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. It will be open until 8 p.m. on Nov. 29 and 30 and Dec. 1, 23, and 26-29. Admission is free. (727) 822-7872;
