The Oliver Community Arts Council along with Oliver Tourism and Downtown Businesses is proud to present the Wine Capital Art Walk! The main event occurs on the evening of Thursday May 10 from 6 – 8 p.m. Artists in a variety of media display and / or demonstrate their best work, sharing space with downtown businesses in the 6200 block of Main Street (north of the Fairview Road intersection). As was the case last year, the art walk will also include wine tastings, live music, draws, children’s art activities, food vendors, and live art demonstrations.
One of the main attractions at the Wine Capital Art Walk is the Wine Barrel Art demonstration and silent auction, running Monday May 7 – Thursday May 10. The live art event features up to 15 skilled artists who transform wine barrels into cherished works of art. They work daily from 10 – 4 p.m. on Main Street. Their activity is entertaining, educational and also promotes the art walk later in the week. Silent auction bids are accepted all week long and the finished barrels are sold to the highest bidders on the Thursday evening.
