WILLIAMSBURG — Starting on Dec. 1, new artwork will be on display at the Williamsburg Winery as a part of the ongoing “Art at Wessex Hundred” exhibit.

This ongoing exhibit showcases the original work of close to 30 talented local artists
working in various media, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, fabric art, and
collages. The artwork changes quarterly and focuses on seasonal themes.

The theme for this round of art is titled “Celebration!” The exhibit aims to capture the artists’ interpretation of what the Winery loves about winter — at the Winery and around Williamsburg.

The exhibit has been organized and managed by “The Art People” (TAP). TAP is a
group of volunteers from the Williamsburg arts community — Cary Garnet and Mary
and Jim McCormick.

This exhibit is now in its second year and members of TAP said it has been tremendously successful for the artists. Since its inception, more than 130 pieces of artwork have sold.

“We anticipate that this new rotation will continue to be successful for the artists — in this gift-giving season, a piece of original art makes a thoughtful gift.  And what better way to support the Shop Local initiative than to purchase a one-of-a-kind piece from one of our area’s talented artists!” Mary McCormick said.

Visitors to the Winery can enjoy viewing the art in the Winery’s Tasting Room. As with the previous exhibits, all of the art is for sale.

The exhibit is free and open to the public seven days a week. Check the Winery website for specific hours and information about Williamsburg Winery.
