Are you a craft beer enthusiast?  Are you a wine enthusiast? Do you love to see unique art by artists in our region?  If so, this is the event for you!  Join Studio 23 on October 11th for an evening of fine art, wine, and craft beer called “A Perfect Pairing.”

During this event you will see NEW artwork from six very talented artists; Brian Goff, Sharon K. Berkan-Dent, Mark Bleshenski, Katrina R. Canfield, Sheri Moore, and Mike Zureich will be talking about the inspiration for their artwork as you travel around the gallery.  All of these artists have their own unique styles of drawing, installation, mixed media, acrylic painting, and pastel. NEW for this event, there will be six craft beer/wine experts who have paired a beer or wine with each work of art.  Hearing how the artwork inspired them to pick the beer or wine will be a unique experience.

A Perfect Pairing is limited to 75 tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are $30 per person and include the wine and beer tasting, hors d’oeuvres, artist inspiration talks, and an “After Glow.”  This event begins promptly at 6:30 pm and will conclude at 8:30 pm.
