Event Description

The elegant and grand tour de force of new and exciting art at DKW Art Gallery is July 11th from noon to 6 PM. View art safely and in person with our serpentine tour of stirring oils and acrylics. Marvel at fine pottery, imaginative dimensional pieces plus representations of historical artifacts. All included with a wine & cheese tasting. All this in our “front to back” visitation of fine talent by regional artists.

The tour begins at our front porch with a taste of a fine spring wine and a creamy pared cheese. You then continue inside as measured spacing is offered in a one-way directed journey from one room to the next. Pause along the way several times for different wine and cheese samples. Descend out the back stairs to relax in comfortable steel chairs and try your last sampling plus listen to fine music presented by our personal DJ, Alexa.

Art for Art’s Sake is scheduled from Noon to 5 PM on Saturday, July 11th at DKW Art Gallery. Groups of more than 4 (including children) are encouraged, but not required to schedule their own time for the tour de force. Otherwise, guest will be guided throughout the gallery as they come, allowing for prescribed social distancing. This event is open to the public at no charge.
