The Big Picture Show: Winter Artists
11/1/2017 – 1/31/2018
173 S Valley Way, Palmer
The Big Picture Show at Humdingers Pizza is the culture creation of VFAA past president, Martha Happs, and proprietor, Gordon Fletcher. The revolving art show is seasonally-themed and larger than life. Each painting must be at least 30 inches on its longest side.
Mr. Fletcher has been a chef since his childhood, preparing pizza and other culinary delights for his Big Lake family since a young age. Today he describes himself, wife and family as a bunch of “foodies”. He has spent many years sharing his love and expertise in making pizza with family and his church's youth group.
After many years of employment with Alaska Department of Corrections locally and in Bethel, he took the leap of faith, betting his savings and pizza making expertise to open Humdingers in Palmer, Alaska. Besides the distinctive pies, Humdingers offers flavorful beer on tap as well as catering. Humdingers has proven to be a favorite pizza in the area, offering a large menu of creative topping combinations on thin crust pizza from wood-fired oven.
Come by between now and end of January 2018 to take in the winter paintings and enjoy an amazing pizza with the family at Humdingers.
