|Local artists on display at Fall Art Show posted on 09/07/2017|
The Rendezvous Grill and Mt. Hood Art Online have already
teamed up to showcase artwork by local artists on the restaurant’s walls. On
Sunday, Sept. 24, more art and the artists behind them will be on hand as part
of the Fall Art Show and Wine Tasting, also featuring free wine tastings and
“It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon,” said Caryn
Tilton, who started Mt. Hood Art Online, a website where mountain artists can
gain greater exposure and connecting artists, patrons and collectors, two years
ago. “We’re hoping for nice weather so we can put things out on the patio.”
Tilton noted that the show will include a range of works,
including oil paintings, water colors and mixed media, with artwork also
available for purchase. A number of artists are also expected to be on hand to
discuss their art.
“For the artists, it’s an opportunity to share their art and
perhaps sell something,” Tilton said.
Tilton added that if the event is well attended, she hopes
to bring it back, perhaps on an annual or biannual basis.
The Fall Art Show and Wine Tasting will be held from 2-6 p.m.
Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Rendezvous Grill, 67149 Hwy. 26 in Welches. For more
