First Friday of October 2014.

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!

First Friday of August

The ballerina dog portraits by Susan Colby.  Creative, imaginative images that take dog portraits to a whole new level.  Please join us. Friday August 1st from 5 to 8 p.m.  We’re still deciding what wine pairs well with canines in tutus.
