Meza Community Post: Art & Wine, with a Focus on Local

Art and wine truly do seem to go hand in hand. Or at least, the wine can make the art flow a bit more!

At Meza we love to really solidify that connection. Twice monthly we co host Sip & Sketch, an art and wine event, with the Arts Council of Westerville. With so many varrious "wine and canvas" events available right now that are growing in popularity, we love that we can offer something a bit different. Sip & Sketch offers the unique twist of utilizing various local artists and art teachers from the Westerville area to teach the classes - and each class is a bit different. One week you may be using pastels, the next acrylic paint. The artist offers up a variety of "inspiration" pieces and offers help with technique - and no one leaves with an identical piece of art work! Each piece is truly unique. 

Cost of the class is $25 - which includes the materials, class and 2 glasses of vino to enjoy while you sketch! That's one of the most affordable events of this type in town. Its such a great way to kick back and relax and take your mind off things while you sip wine and create art. Looking to register for an upcoming event? Just call us at 614.259.3101 to be added to the schedule. We also offer private classes for groups of 10 or more! A great way to celebrate a birthday, kick off a night of Bachelorette festivities or to utilize as a team building event for your group at the office. 

The connection to the artistic world is not foreign to Westerville. Coming up next month (July 8-10)  is the Westerville Music & Arts Festival, an annual community event that features over 150 local artists, food vendors and live entertainment. The Music & Arts Fest is held at Heritage Park (Everal Barn) with an exciting twist this year - the Friday evening portion will be held in Uptown! There will be a special music and arts showcase with a reception at Old Bag of Nails just a few doors North of Meza. Stroll the street and check out some amazing local art work, and stop by Meza Wine Shop for our Friday night wine tasting!

Check out the website for the Music & Arts Fest below - such a cool way to spend a summer weekend!
