Open to guests of all ages, Art & Wine in the Vines features a colourful roster of events intended to connect people with artists, vintners and culinary purveyors from the Okanagan Valley. The art walk event allows attendees to wander freely between the adjoining Liquidity Wines and Noble Ridge Winery vineyards and participate in festivities occurring at both sites; alternatively, guests can hop aboard a shuttle connecting the vineyards (the shuttle will run at regular intervals throughout the weekend). Along the art walk path, artists will demonstrate plein air painting and lead interactive tutorials (11am to 4pm; times vary by artist) while wine-tasting stations will keep guests refreshed. Tickets cost $15, and include art walk admission as well as wine tastings, a commemorative glass and shuttle access. Tickets can be purchased online at the Liquidity website.
Vancouver based sculptor Marie Khouri will be presenting an exclusive lecture on Saturday the 15. During the lecture, Khouri will share insight into her process, artistic practice and personal history, including the influence of her Egyptian and Lebanese roots. Though at this time the event is fully booked, art aficionados are encouraged to include their names on a wait list by calling 778-515-5500, ext 2, or emailing [email protected].
