WILLIAMSBURG — A new art exhibit, “Bountiful Harvest,” is slated to open Sept. 1 at the Williamsburg Winery’s “Art at Wessex Hundred” ongoing art exhibit.
This is the second rotation of artwork that the Williamsburg Winery has presented in its ongoing exhibit, with the first featured in April. The new rotation celebrates the fall harvest season and will include 27 artists. The pieces that will be on display will feature a wide variety of mediums.
The exhibit was organized by dedicated volunteers from the Williamsburg arts community who call themselves “The Art People” — Cary Garnet and Mary and Jim McCormick. The moniker is a nod to the group’s early planning meetings with winery staff, who would greet them with “Oh, the art people are here.”
The Williamsburg Winery notes that the artwork featured in this exhibit focuses on the beauty of the Winery and its 300-acre farm, Wessex Hundred — a popular destination for wine and nature lovers in the community.
The rotation will feature an opportunity to speak with the artists on Sept. 22 at the winery from 6-8 p.m. in the Susan Constant Hall Tasting Room. All of the pieces featured and created by the local artists will be available for purchase from the exhibit as well.
The rotation runs until Nov. 30. For more information about the Williamsburg Winery, check out its webpage.
