Gator Gothic

Tail Gators

Sometimes you gotta have a little fun, so when George Ferreira invited artists to create works for his gator themed art exhibit, Waniguchi, the Gator and the Sake Cup ...well I just couldn't resist a parody. 
Gainesville has a gothic style Century bell tower, the "bat house" bats, Saturday tailgate burgers and football fans with the craze for a certain "T-rrific quarterback".
Please visit Ice House Gallery in McIntosh before the exhibit closes on January 29th, 2011. 
Who modeled for the painting American Gothic by Grant Wood? It was not a husband and wife as some think. Do you know?
