The Fine Art and Wine events at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch were developed in partnership with Texas Treasures Fine Art to recognize and appreciate art and artists in a relaxed setting while conversing with artists and admiring their works up close. In addition, artwork may be purchased at each event.
At the Clubs’ first event on October 27, “A Night with Thomas Arvid,” America’s preeminent painter of wine discussed his passion for collecting both art and wine and how on each canvas he strives to capture the pleasure of a life well-lived. Art Business News (May, 2003) credits the self-taught artist with “launching a major art trend…” with his oversized still life compositions of wine and the casual rituals surrounding it, using lush colors and skillful application. Guests were entertained with a live painting demonstration while appropriately enjoying food and wine pairings.
