What is Art on the Vine?
It’s The Art League’s first art auction and wine-tasting party! The event kicked off May 30 with a 10-day online art auction that culminates in a festive, global wine-tasting party on Friday, June 9 at 7:30 pm in the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
The auction …
The online auction began at 12:00 noon on May 30, and it features a variety of artwork from our esteemed faculty of artists as well as date night packages from local Alexandria businesses, including the new Hotel Indigo. A small selection of the items are pictured above.
The final round of bidding will occur during the event on June 9 as a silent auction. No ticket is required to bid online. To attend the final round of bidding (and taste the wine), you’ll need an Art on the Vine ticket ($55).
… the wine
The Art on the Vine wine tasting party on June 9 will feature 12 different wines from around the world. Tickets are $55 per person, and each ticket holder will receive a tasting glass, eight tastings, and one full pour.
Well Crafted Wine & Beverage Co. curated the selection of wines, and the tasting is designed to take the palate on a journey from light to bold. Chadwicks in Old Town will provide light hors d’oeuvres.
All proceeds go to benefit The Art League and its educational programs.
