If you’re going to be around Ballston this Saturday, 12/17/11, make sure you check out the Green Drinks Arlington 2nd Annual Art+Wine Bazaar. Our friends Marina Ospina, Sweet Root Village and Genevieve Concannon have put together another great line up for a fun, festive holiday event to benefit the Arlington Food Assistance Center.
Save the date a wonderful holiday event that will inspire you to think about Local and free-trade artists and bring together community at a fun, laid back gallery opening. Art and Wine Bazaar is back.For the 2nd year in a row, Green Drinks Arlington’s founders, Genevieve Concannon and Marina Ospina along with Sweet Root Village bring you a festive party to engage the community in local art, wine and the spirit of the Season- Giving.
With such a successful event last year, we have added more local artisans and hope to arouse your senses with food, fun and creativity. Shop local artist’s photography, paintings, pottery, glass art, floral design, gift baskets and more while listening to laid back music and sipping wine. Doesn’t that sound better than wresting people for sweaters at the Mall? Yeah, we thought so!
Join us and enjoy music by DJ Walz Street, wine by Matt Carroll and a gallery of unique art by various local and free-trade artists!
