Woman Sees Cats In Gourds; Creates Museum

SUGAR LOAF, N.Y (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An artist in Sugar Loaf, N.Y. is out of her gourd for gourds.

Devon Cameron is one of the world’s only artist’s who focuses on gourds as her medium, using them as canvases to paint cats, roosters and even Jolly Old St. Nick.

This “Gauguin of gourds” says she was inspired one day in her garden when she saw the likeness of a cat in one of the oddly-shaped vegetables.

The visions haven’t stopped. In fact, she’s been inspired to open the Gourd Gallery in her home town, which has its grand opening April 8.

As she puts it, “people don’t realize that gourds last forever and never rot” and claims they have been found in ancient tombs.

While gourds have gotten a bad rep over the years for resembling certain parts of a woman’s body, Cameron says you won’t find any distasteful gourds in her shop – she prefers to keep it wholesome.
