WILLIAMSBURG — The final installment of the “Art at Wessex Hundred” series, which started in 2022, is now on display at Williamsburg Winery.

According to organizers, the “Art at Wessex Hundred” was created by many of the area’s most talented artists. The series has changed quarterly to highlight the seasonal changes in the landscape of the vineyards, Wessex Hundred, and the larger Williamsburg community.

The latest rotation challenged artists to capture “the most enduring images of these beautiful places across all four seasons.”

The final rotation is titled “Journey through the Seasons” and is on display and open seven days a week in the Winery’s Susan Constant Hall Tasting Room. Guests at the Winery can enjoy viewing the art while sipping a glass of award-winning wine and enjoying the ambiance of the newly redecorated Tasting Room.

“Art at Wessex Hundred,” the inspiration of Winery founder Patrick Duffeler, showcases original artwork in various media, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, fabric art and collages. The exhibit has been organized and managed by “The Art People” (TAP) — Cary Garnet and Mary and Jim McCormick — volunteers from the Williamsburg arts community . After 2 1/2 years and eight rotations, TAP is closing the exhibit.

In celebration of this multi-year arts experience, the public is invited to a
free, after-hours reception to meet the artists of “Art at Wessex Hundred” on March 14, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Tasting Room.

As a special bonus, TAP will host a “Pop-up Arts Market” during the reception, where earlier pieces by the exhibit artists will also be available for sale.

“So come, purchase a glass or bottle of wine to enjoy with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, listen to the soft jazz of the Tony Mata Duo, and purchase a piece of the wonderful artwork to take home!” Said Mary McCormick of TAP.

All art on exhibit is for sale. The exhibit will be on display until May 27. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Check the winery website for specific hours.
