During the event, Art of Wine attendees are treated to wine and appetizers and have an opportunity to purchase original photographs and paintings created by clients in Willows Way's Mentor Arts program and photography club. The artists receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of their art. This year, the event will feature original works from six photographers and five painters.
“This is the coolest event! Their talent blows me away and the thrill of watching the artists sell their work is something you won't forget. You'll meet the artists, fall in love with one their pieces and walk away with an amazing story to tell,” said Willows Way Executive Director Joy Steele.
