Expand Your Palette

February 20, 2020

6-8 pm, $30 per ticket 

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 watercolor, acrylic paint, colored pencil and mixed media. 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. 

Wine provided by Woodberry Wines.

 

We have two great events this Fall! A Perfect Pairing & Expand Your Palette. Both events feature art, food and wine. If you’d like to attend both events we are offering a discount on tickets. $50 for both great events this perfect fall! Call the studio to purchase today.

Chris earned the rst Platinum Member status in the Alabama Watercolor Society.

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.
