|Art & Wine Walk begins May 19|
Looking for something to do Saturday afternoons this summer? Join the North Valley Arts Council and the Downtown Leadership Group for an Art & Wine Walk in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. The Art & Wine Walk takes place on the third Saturday of the month, from 2 to 5 p.m., beginning May 19 and ending Oct. 20.
Stroll through downtown and visit galleries, businesses, bars and restaurants to view art produced by regional artists, and sample wine. Artwork will be available for purchase, and artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
The Art & Wine Walk begins at the Empire Arts Center, where maps can be purchased for $10. All ages are welcome to attend, and those over 21 will receive a wristband, allowing participation in wine tasting. At each participating business, the map will be stamped (wine consumption is not required to receive a stamp). Turn in the map at the end of the walk to enter a drawing for one of two gift baskets of prizes donated by participating businesses.
The Art & Wine Walk schedule from 2 to 5 p.m. is May 19, June 16, July 21, Aug. 18, Sept. 15, and Oct. 20.
For more information, or to participate as a hosting business or an exhibiting artist, contact the North Valley Arts Council at 777-6120 or email@example.com. The Art & Wine Walk is sponsored, in part, by the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and Gilly’s Bar and Grill.
