Their latest show, "City Bites," combines two local artists who share a favorite subject: food! Specifically, Mike Geno and Michael Persico create art around Philadelphia chefs and restaurants. 

Persico - whose work is at right - is a photographer who shoots food, drinks, restaurants and restaurateurs for various publications and restaurant groups. Geno is a fine artist who paints different types of foods, everything from Federal Donuts goodies to Tastykakes and scrapple. The work of both artists will make your mouth water.

Local spots like Zama, Federal Donuts, Zahav, Vedge, Fitler Dining Room and Metropolitan are depicted in "City Bites." The show is free and open to the public through the summer.
