Art From Michigan’s Wine Country ~ Friday, February 4, 2011

Great art, wine and food are the main events for Art From Michigan’s Wine Country, Friday, February 4th from 6-8 p.m. in the Mountain Flowers Lodge at The Homestead Resort, Glen Arbor. It’s a special evening that kicks off the Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Association’s Taste the Passion weekend. For a third year, this fun winter event features wine from Leelanau wineries, original art by local artists and a fabulous small plates menu designed by The Homestead’s Chef Piombo.

The price is $20 per person, a portion of which benefits the Glen Arbor Art Association, and includes one glass of wine and food stations with delectable small plates. Additional wine available for $4/glass or three glasses for $10. A coffee tasting will be provided by Leelanau Coffee Roasters.

The invitational art exhibit and sale offers recent original works by nine Leelanau artists including Jane Batteiger, Beth Bricker, Celeste Crouch, Don Drabik, Mary Fuscaldo, Harvey Gordon, Kristin Hurlin, Harriett Mittelberger and Sally Wille. The artists will be on hand to discuss their work. This is a good opportunity to meet local artists and celebrate a perfect pairing of wine and art. A portion of the art sales will benefit GAAA’s summer programs.

Five dollars of each $20 admission will go to GAAA for class scholarships and a free after-school art program for Glen Lake students. Scholarship assistance and the after-school art program provide arts opportunities for those who could not otherwise afford art classes. Please join us on February 4 for a fun winter evening that also supports these worthwhile GAAA programs.

    Northern Michigan has both wine and art a-plenty . I made a list of six reasons why the two go so well together. Would you like me to send it?
