WINE FEST ART
The beautiful image at the top of the page is a new acrylic work by Sunset Beach artist Liz Roberts that has been selected for promoting Wine Fest 2013. Roberts’ bold and colorful art is inspired by her world travels, interesting music, dance, and the beauty of coastal Carolina. You will see this painting on Wine Fest posters and billboards. A limited number of full-color posters featuring this painting will be sold at Sunset River Marketpalce and Wine Fest 2013 for $25 each with the proceeds going to support the Museum and Planetarium. The original painting will be auctioned off at Wine Fest 2013′s live auction on April 27. Thank you, Liz — we love your work!
