Wine & Design DC

On a Sunny day in the District of Columbia last Saturday 48 individuals came out to the debut of Wine & Design DC; an art series created by Candice Nicole & Tommie Collins. Wine & Design DC was held at Taste Art Gallery which is a new art gallery/event space in the nation's capital. The series mission is to provide an experience for the individual and to offer something new in the city for the young urban professional who has a creative side they have always wanted to tap into.

The debut of Wine & Design DC was very well received. The art instructor for both sold out sessions that day (5 PM/7 PM) was Courtney Savoy AKA "The Artist". Courtney is a well known art educator and artist in the DC Metropolitan area. The attendees had the task of creating a city skyline of their choice with multiple references provided to them such as NYC, Washington, DC, Atlanta & Chicago sky lines. However, attendees could feel free to paint whatever they wanted and wherever the paint and paint brush guided them. Guests sipped onBirthday Cake Wine flavors "Coffee Cake" (Red Wine) and "Cheesecake" (White Wine) while also enjoying desserts (cookies, brownies, pasties & cinnamon pin wheels). 

Wine & Design DC would like to thank Taste Art GalleryBirthday Cake WineCourtney Savoy & Frederick Franklin Films.
