June 22 for "Currents"
Art & Wine Lovers Invited to Flow with ‘Currents’
Willcox art event combines art, wine tastings, and music
Willcox, Ariz. (June 4, 2013) – Art and wine lovers can go with the flow during “Currents,” a drifting, wafting, flowing summer art show. The opening event is a progressive affair, much like a progressive dinner. All summer long TRUST Art & Design will highlight new art works, introduce guest artists and hold special events in Willcox locations.
The first Currents event will be June 22 at three Willcox area winery tasting rooms: Zarpara Vineyard, Flying Leap Vineyards Willcox tasting room and Keeling Schaefer Vineyards Willcox. TRUST is a collection of original fine art displayed in the area’s wine tasting venues.
During Currents, visitors can meet artists whose works are featured, sample wines from local vineyards, and talk with Kim and Thomas Johnson, the husband and wife owners of TRUST Art & Design. Visitors can attend one, two, or all three locations of the flowing art day. Each venue will have unique art works and wines from Cochise County vintners. Local favorite, Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl, will entertain with live music from 3-7 pm.
