Art Auction is LIVE through June 16!

Art Auction & Wine Tasting Party

Art on the Vine – part global wine tour, part fine art tour – features a seven day online auction of artwork by The Art League's esteemed faculty of artists.

New Details!

The wine selection:
 Ranging from light and fresh to full-bodied, the wines for Art on the Vine have been curated by Well Crafted Beverage. Three reds, three whites, three sparklers, and one sweet wine are available to taste. Read more in this blog post.

“Well Crafted Beverage imports unique and estate driven wines to the United States. We travel to source our own wines with the hope of bringing a face and a story to the wine world in the States.

The wines selected for Art on the Vine are hard-to-find, made by artisan producers, and were chosen to mirror and pair with the art on display for the evening.”

—Tony Acampora, our Sommelier for Art on the Vine
