There are only two Art & Wine Walks (hosted by Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau and North Valley Arts Council) left in 2011, and one of them is tomorrow, Saturday, September 17! Everything kicks off at 1 p.m. at either the Blue Moose Bar & Grill in East Ground Forks or the GuestHouse Inn in Grand Forks. You can purchase a map for $15 (must be 21), which will include wine samples at all participating locations as well as a commemorative wine glass. At 5 p.m. the event wraps up with a champagne reception at the Empire Arts Center. There will be food, champagne and lots of great prizes (must be present to win)!
Art & Wine Walk is a great way to get together with friends (and meet new ones) as well as view unique artworks from regional artists, shop at Greater Grand Forks businesses and experience a variety of wines.
There are a number of businesses participating on both sides of the river including Bonzer’s, River Cities Jewelers, Dakota Harvest Bakers, Badman Design, Third Street Gallery, Mike’s Pizza, Amazing Grains, Lillian’s, Mamma Maria’s, O’Really’s and Level 10. There is also an array of artists ready to show off their incredible works include Jon Coffin, Tessa Hiney, Kimberly Forness Wilson, David Vorland, Thomas Anderson, Steve Hawthorne, David Badman, Angie Aarnes, Megan Johnson, Ellen Gagnon, Terri Berg, Kristin Berg, Maria Thompson, JoJo Seames, Laura Bluel, Mary Haugstad, Joan Mullen, Trey Everett, Molly Douthip, Adam Kemp and Guillermo Guardia.
If you can’t make this AWW, the last one of the season will be Saturday, October 15, at the same starting locations. More details may be found online.
See you on the Walk!
