Join Tulsa Garden Center on Saturday, September 30 for a celebration of Oklahoma art and wine in the beautiful setting of the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens at Woodward Park. The festivities will serve as a kick off event, as we begin the countdown to Tulsa Garden Center’s Twelfth Annual “An Evening of Wine and Roses”. The kick off event is free and open to the public.
From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, members of the Oklahoma Society of Impressionists (OSI) will be stationed in different locations of the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens, painting en plein air – a French term meaning “in the open air.” Plein Air painting emerged in the late nineteenth century in France, and was practiced by well known artist such as Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Camille Pissaro. Artwork created during the “en plein air” will be auctioned off at An Evening of Wine & Roses.
The event will feature Tidal School Vineyard and other Oklahoma wines at a tasting from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Food will be provided by Muriel Doyle, Food coach and Owner of Advance Nutrition International and other caterers.
