Coming soon to Niagara-on-the-Lake: a sensory experience for your eyes, your taste buds and your imagination.
A collective of artists from Niagara-on-the-Lake is hosting a six-month-long art exhibit opening this spring at Château des Charmes, a winery in St. Davids.
The new exhibit will open to the public from May 26 to Oct. 26 at no charge.
It will feature work from the NOTL Arts Collective, which includes 25 professional artists from Niagara-on-the-Lake, plus curators and supporting galleries such as the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre.
The arts collective is hosting an opening reception for the exhibit on June 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. where guests will be able to enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine while enjoying the exhibit.
“Over the years, Château des Charmes has been a strong supporter of local arts and artists,” said Rima Boles, Niagara Pumphouse’s arts director in a media release. “It’s really important for us to align with a local company that shares our vision and believes in our growth.
Last fall was the start of the winery’s collaboration with the NOTL Arts Collective. Members showcased their works on the property’s second floor in the St. Davids Bench Room and the Paul Bosc Lounge.
“In a town like Niagara-on-the-Lake, the arts not only add to the visitors’ experience but also play a vital role in the community. Art adds to the identity and uniqueness of our town,” stated Paul Bosc, Château des Charmes’s owner and founder.
Château des Charmes already has a partnership with the arts centre as its official wine sponsor: its wines are exclusively served at all the art centre’s events.
“Through this partnership, we want to contribute to Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre’s efforts of strengthening the visual arts community,” Bosc stated.
