Tom Malinoski, an artist and graphic designer, is responsible for our new Wine and Art Weekend logo created for the Wine Trail and the Chatuauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail.
In early meetings, we discussed the traditions and the many connections between wine and art. Both vintners and artists are growers, optimists, says Tom; both start with “seeds”, be they grape vines or a lump of clay, and after nurturing them create things to enjoy, whether visually or as a libation. There is a “shared tradition to create beauty, to enhance our life experience, to make the “dance” as good as it can be.
Art and Wine is a natural pairing! Enjoy wine tastings amidst artworks created by artists from the Chautauqua-Lake Erie Art Trail and the North East Arts Council. Special opportunities to converse with the artists as they work; a schedule of art demonstrations will be available online.
