August’s LQAF Art & Wine art installation features Metal Sculptors Ric & Tim Vigallon, and Photographer Bart Aldrich—all regular exhibitors at La Quinta Arts Festival and Art Under the Umbrellas at Old Town La Quinta. Their artwork will be on display and for sale at Old Town Cellar throughout the entire month of August.
You are invited to stop by this intimate gallery anytime to enjoy a glass of your favorite wine, a nosh, and take in the incredible art for sale.
To coincide with the exhibit, Old Town Cellar will be offering Happy Hours, Monday through Saturday beginning at 3pm till closing throughout the run of the LQAF “Art & Wine” event.
Happy Hour will begin at 3 pm (when the bar opens) until closing – Monday through Saturday – with live entertainment on the weekends. One can purchase any of 30 items featured on the Summer Happy Hour menu for only $6 apiece.
This is a great opportunity to sample a glass of premium wine or taste the Old Town Cellar signature sliders or BBQ ribs at Happy Hour prices while admiring the artwork.
Brothers Ric &Tim Vigallon reside in Joshua Tree where they create vibrant hand crafted metal wall hanging sculptures, mostly made out of stainless steel and aluminum. Although their art primarily focuses on wildlife, “woody” surf wagons, native flora and fauna, and ocean scenes, they are also adept at creating custom commission pieces. They have sold their sculptures to the Art in Public Places programs for the City of Palm Desert and the City of La Quinta. Ric and Tim’s distinctive work can be displayed outdoors or inside the home.
Indio based photographer Bart Aldrich (a former wine sales representative – how fitting for the occasion) began to craft his career as a landscape and travel photographer in the 80s. While Bart is still highly recognized for his representational photography, the area that makes his work unique and sets him apart from other photographers, is his abstract works, a process and style Bart calls “Abstract Photo-Painting.” Several of Bart’s travel, landscape and abstract works have been published in photographic magazines and book covers in the U.S., Europe, and Asia – most recently in the May 2009 issue of Outdoor Photographer.
