LOCAL ARTISTS SHOWCASE THEIR WORK AT NORTHERN SONOMA COUNTY WINERIES
 
The Wine Road and Art at the Source Partner to promote local area artists and winemakers this April and May
 
(HEALDSBURG, CA; March 3, 2010)—This April and May, the Wine Road will be partnering with Art at the Source for its annual art and wine program. The special “Art at the Wineries” event will feature local Sonoma area painters, sculptors, photographers, potters, jewelers, fiber artists, and glass artists on display at over 30 Wine Road members’ tasting rooms. This preview is a two-month event leading up to the 16th annual “Art at the Source Open Studios”, a self-guided, open-studio event that is held the first two weekends in June. The Sebastopol Center for the Arts, a grassroots, nonprofit arts center created in 1988 by a coalition of art, business, and community members to provide art programs and services for all sectors of the community, is the sponsor for “Art at the Source Open Studios”.
            “We are excited to once again be able to showcase beautiful local art with our winery members,” says Beth Costa, executive director of the Wine Road. “Visitors are given the opportunity to enjoy Sonoma County’s visual arts, along with award-winning wines for which this region is known.”
The Wine Road is an invaluable source for planning a perfect weekend to experience art in the wine country. Visitors can access information on the “Art at the Wineries” event through www.wineroad.com, including participating wineries and artists, lodging, shopping, dining options, and more. World-class wineries, distinguished California cuisine, and a flourishing artist scene – all set against the beautiful backdrop of Sonoma County’s landscape – make for an unforgettable getaway as Wine Road and Art at the Source celebrate art appreciation.
