A perfect pairing: art and wine

The Artists of the Okanagan-Similkameen are taking their show on the road in July, painting en plein air, as part of the Art and Wine in the Vines weekend.

The new event is a partnership with the Federation of Canadian Artists joining forces with Liquidity and Noble Ridge Wineries in Okanagan Falls for a weekend of wine, artworks and culinary treats on July 15 and 16, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

Artists are displaying their masterpieces for viewing and purchase along the art walk weaving through the connecting vineyards, with wine tasting stations from both Liquidity and Noble Ridge.

The artists will also be showing more of their works in the winery barn at Noble Ridge Vineyard, and Liquidity has also invited Vancouver-based sculptor Marie Khouri for an artist lecture, which takes place on July 15 from 3 to 4 p.m. Khouri will share insight into her process, artistic practice and personal biography, which includes a range of cultural and historical influences.

There will also be a shuttle bus running back and forth between the two wineries. For more information and to purchase tickets visit: www.liquiditywines.com.
