Yountville, CA – March 30, 2017 – Join us for Yountville’s 5th annual Art, Sip & Stroll on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 11a.m. to 5p.m. Enjoy an afternoon of fine wines while strolling through the Public Art Walk in this beautiful town and the eclectic galleries of V Marketplace.
Meet Art Walk Artists and the gallery artists, Betty Jo March from Hogan of Napa Valley, Sherry Flammer from Sisters, and from North Bay Gallery, Marta Collings and the world famous Guy Buffet. Betty Jo March has been painting for over 40 years. She does occasionally paint with oils, but prefers working with watercolor and the plein air method. Betty Jo records the nuances of every season in an attempt to show the world the beauty she sees in the valley every day. Marta Collings who has been painting all her life, professionally for the last 20 years, considers herself a “plein air painter” and prefers to paint on location with watercolor. She says her style is impressionism and that she loves the looseness and moods it invokes. Watch Marta and Betty Jo as they demonstrate their talents out on our front lawn. Also on the front lawn is jewelry designer Sherry Flammer. Sherry specializes in handcrafted eclectic jewelry designs using semi precious stones and Swarovski crystals. Inside V Marketplace meet French/Americanartist Guy Buffet. Guy is world famous and his sublime sense of the burlesque is unparalleled and infectious as seen in his iconic paintings of waiters and chefs. Guy will be signing any Guy Buffet art or collectable that you bring in.
Some of the wineries participating in Art, Sip & Stroll are Cornerstone Cellars, hope & grace and Silver Trident Winery, plus there will be many more throughout Yountville. V Marketplace will host Dillon Vineyards, Tognettie Family Winery and Trombetta Family Wines on our front lawn and inside North Bay Gallery.
