The “Art” at the 2016 Art and the Vineyard is represented by paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, wall hangings, and wearable art created by over 100 artists in the Artists’ Marketplace. It includes the garden furniture, ceramics, gates and arbors, and outdoor sculpture by the over 20 artists in Art For Your Garden, where artwork is enhanced by the flowers and foliage of native plants. And there’s also art to be enjoyed at the Specialty Booths as well as artist demonstrations throughout the festival.
The Wineries area at the 2016 Art and the Vineyard gives wine connoisseurs and novices alike the chance to sample the best the Willamette Valley and beyond has to offer. And to complement the wine are dishes from many nations available in the International Food Court.
Art and the Vineyard is a festival with multi-generational appeal. The Youth Art Arena gives the younger crowd the chance to enjoy art-making activities and displays provided by a variety of community organizations. The Youth Stage provides entertainment - - music, theatre, dance, storytelling, and more - - all three days of the festival.
It’s not only the visual arts that give Art and the Vineyard its special flavor. Main Stage Music plays a big part in the weekend’s festivities. This year’s event again brings in regionally recognized talent.
