Artist's Reception at East End Winery

Take one talented artist, who happens to be my sister Liz, add a beautiful Summer evening in July, have a wonderful east end winery, Palmer Vineyards of Riverhead, Long Island, New York, invite her to feature her art for the entire Summer into Harvest, invite everyone, and what do you get? A perfect Friday night with the arts! Liz parked her 1951 red Chevy truck out front with a banner to let the world know her reception was at the winery that evening.
On the grounds between the two buildings a beautiful, healthy array of nibbles was set out for everyone to enjoy in between their wine testings and art appreciation. Liz and her friend Ronnie set the display inside vintage toy trucks!

I cannot pass up a hydrangea without taking a picture. The grounds were so beautiful!

This is a little display that was on the bar where the wine testings went on. It shows the reflection of the sun, but if anyone knows what type of Summer we have been having, who am I to compain about the sun? :) Notice the little red truck to the left holding Liz's business cards. Do you know she loves old trucks?

I captured my sister Nancy and nephews Rob, Dave and Matt finding a special seating area right near the rows and rows of grapes. The sun was starting to set and everyone was beginning to move to the deck and ground area to take in more of God's glory of the day.

A couple of Liz's newest additions.This show was called "Big and Bold".

This last picture Liz called an abstract of a truck. She loves trying new techniques. There was so much more. This is just a little inkling of the evening and the artist's work.
