(Art Instructor To Lead Group During Wine and Food Pairing Saluting Gustav Klimt at Millard Sheets Art Center at Fairplex in Pomona)
Whether you’re a novice or a professional artist who also has a passion for fine dining and wines are invited to “Palates & Palettes” on Saturday, January 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Millard Sheets Art Center at Fairplex in Pomona (1101 W. McKinley Drive- parking at gate 1). Held each month, the events highlight a famous artist from a particular geographic location and guests, guided by an experienced art teacher, either recreate one of his famous works or use the art as inspiration. Meanwhile, cuisine and wines from the artist’s homeland are served.
January’s “Palates & Palettes” will feature the work of Viennese artist Gustav Klimt, a symbolist painter also known for his murals, sketches and other objets d’art. Guests will be encouraged to work with pattern and ornament in their paintings, which they will take home after the event. The food, catered by Twisted Sage of San Dimas, and wines, provided by the Los Angeles International Wine Competition, will salute Klimt’s native Austria. Cost is $75 per person and includes painting supplies as well as the food and wine.
“We’re looking forward to January’s Palates & Palettes and exploring the works of one of the premier artists of the late 19th and early 20th century,” said Thomas Canavan, art center manager of Millard Sheets Art Center at Fairplex. “We hold these events monthly and welcome those of any age and level of experience. Attendees include everyone from students and art enthusiasts to those on a date and even entire families.”
Space is limited and reservations may be made by calling (909) 865-4161.
