Expand Your Palette is a way to get out of your comfort zone with your friends. This event has been created to help you try some art and try some wine.
Four art stations will be placed around the gallery where you will experiment with printmaking, painting, collage and more. Think of this as an upgraded Sip N’ Swirl painting! You will leave with a piece of art that you can display in your home.
Art is not the only thing you get to expand: you will be expanding your wine palette as well. Tables will be set around the gallery with popular choices of wine, like merlot or chardonnay. When you visit the tables you will also see samples of wine that are not those options, opening your palette to other
flavors that are similar. This is a perfect way to expand your palette!
Light hors d’oeuvres will be supplied by Artigiano.READ MORE
