The Center Art Foundation is proud to present VineArts, an evening of local wine and local art benefitting Path with Art.
Savor your way through wine tastings and food pairings, vote on your favorite “mystery” wines from local wineries, and support the art community – all while surrounded by the beauty of Dale Chihuly’s art at Chihuly Garden and Glass.
This year, guests will have the opportunity to purchase a hand-blown glass goblet, selecting from unique designs from four local artists, or enter to win a private dining experience for 20 people at Chihuly’s Boathouse, the studio and hot shop where Chihuly’s artwork is created.
This year, VineArts benefits Path with Art, a transformative, local, nonprofit organization. Their dedication to providing access to the arts for people recovering from homelessness, addiction, and other trauma offers a critical bridge to the community and a path to stability. A portion of proceeds from all sales will be donated through the Center Art Foundation, a subsidiary of the Seattle Foundation established to enhance the quality-of-life in our communities through support of the arts.
This is a 21+ event – ID’s must be shown at the door for entrance for all ages.
$75 + tax & gratuity
