Join us for an inspiring start to summer! The Taste of Summer Wine Tasting and Fundraiser will feature wines from around the world and artwork from across North Carolina on one of the first nights of summer. Our sponsor Ararat Imports is bringing a selection of wine from the best regions in the world including France, Italy, Armenia and California. These fine wines will be paired with heavy hors d’oeuvres from Downtown Restaurants. VAE’s galleries will feature Scope: The Southern Landscape Exhibit as well as a handful of featured local artists. The selected wines will be available for sale during the event, with a percentage of proceeds going to VAE’s programs for artists.

Tickets are $30 each ($25 for VAE artist members).
Tickets available on eventbrite or through the gallery.

Sounds great, right? Get your tickets on Eventbrite today!
