Out-of-the-way art: Would you like a cappuccino with that canvas?
“I’ll have a cupcake, a coffee and a Cbabi original, please." That order may sound funny elsewhere but it’s appropriate and possible at SweetArt bakery.
SweetArt, owned by artist Cbabi Bayoc and his wife, Reine Bayoc, also serves as studio and gallery for the painter perhaps best-known for this year’s “365 Days with Dad” project celebrating African-American fathers. It shares that gallery-and-more distinction with a number of other St. Louis establishments.
You can get a painting with your permanent at Drew Henry hair salon, a paperback and a print at the University City Library, wine and something for your wall at the Vino Gallery and, well, you get the idea.
