|Art & Wine Walk is set for Sept. 20|
Stroll through downtown Saturday, Sept. 20, from 1 to 5 p.m. and view artwork by local artists at galleries, restaurants, and other business that serve wine or other non-alcoholic refreshment. Most artwork is available for sale, and artists are on hand to discuss their work. The Art & Wine Walk is a great way to experience downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, view artwork by regional artists, and learn about the many and varied businesses downtown.
The Art & Wine Walk begins at the Blue Moose Bar & Grill in East Grand Forks, where maps can be purchased for $10. At each participating business, the map will be stamped (wine consumption is not required to receive a stamp). Maps can be turned in at the closing reception at the Empire Arts Center to enter a drawing for a gift basket of prizes donated by participating businesses. The closing reception will also feature a champagne toast, sponsored by Happy Harry’s Bottle Shops.
Another Art & Wine Walk 2008 is set for Oct. 18.
The Art & Wine Walk is organized by the North Valley Arts Council and the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitors Bureau, and is sponsored by the Empire Arts Center, the Blue Moose Bar & Grill, Clear Channel Radio, Happy Harry’s Bottle Shops, and Gilly’s Bar & Grill.
