The colors and textures of Jane Varda’s paintings and pastels draw you in, and this collection makes you think thoughts of cooling weather and harvest moons. There are still-life paintings and landscapes, including a few painted on the grounds of Taliesin. The opening for this exhibit is Friday evening from 5 – 7. We’ll be sampling 2 wines that are new to Convivio from South America. Please join us!
Matt from L’Eft Bank Wine will join us on Saturday September 20th from 1 – 3 pm. He’ll have some beautiful Rieslings to sample, very dry, quite sweet, and everything in between. Please join us! Riesling is one of the best wines to pair with cheeses, and has a bad reputation to overcome… it’s not just simple and sweet, it can be beautiful and complex. Here’s your chance to sample.
We’re having an Accessories Trunk Show in conjunction with
Bali & Soul. Janice will join us with her imports from Bali, Thailand, and India and will have scarves, shawls and jewelry for sale. Of course we will choose a wine to pair with such an evening and have it available for sampling.
Please spread the word! and be sure to join us!
