WILMINGTON—It’s a night of art and helping others, centering on one theme: food.

Wilmington-based artists Kelly Sweitzer and Candy Pegram of The Peppermill Shop are planning a  “Funky Folk Food Show,” which opens Friday, June 22 at 6 p.m. Ten percent of the art show’s proceeds will go toward the Good Shepherd Center.

“The food theme of the exhibition echoes one of Good Shepherd’s main tenets to provide food for our hungry neighbors,” a release about the show states. “In the last year, Good Shepherd has served over 122,000 meals to guests and residents who might not otherwise have access to healthy food and hot meals.

The Peppermill shop is located in the Wabi Sabi Warehouse. Located at 19 North 9th St., Wabi Sabi Warehouse is a gallery and studio space in the Soda Pop district of downtown Wilmington.

Pegram and Sweitzer have participated in many art shows and artisan markets around town, the release states.

According to the press release, the two artists will use their foodie theme to help further the mission of the Good Shepherd Center nonprofit organization.

The art exhibit will run through July 20. The opening event on June 22 begins at 6 p.m. On site will be Port City Que food truck, which will also be donating 10 percent of its food sales that night to the Good Shepherd Center.

The Funky Folk Food Show begins Friday, June 22 at 6 p.m. Visitors will be able to see the exhibit through July 20. For more information, visit the event page for more information.
