Join us on Saturday, January 24th from 5-8 pm, when Christy Tremblay will be on hand to discuss her art show “A Painted House a Day“.  Ms. Tremblay, a mixed media artist,  was selected for the next exhibition at the winery due to her unique perspective on military life. 

Christy just completed an art challenge, A Painted House A Day. Her goal was to create with paint and mixed media one house image a day, for 183 days. She completed 183 Painted Houses from March 2014 to September 2014.
A Northwest native, Christy has taught in Korea and visited cities, rural areas and islands in Southeast Asia. She started using the imagery of houses in her art about four years ago when she and her family were living on Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX. They had a historical Bungalow with a lot of charm.  She says, " Growing up I had two houses I called 'home.' As an adult and with a family of my own, I have had many houses to make a home. My husband is Active Duty Army and we move often.  Although a move comes with work and saying
goodbyes, we embrace each move and look forward to our new adventures, people to meet, and places to explore. Houses are houses. A home is for a family to create safety, love, and memories. As I make each move with my two daughters and husband, I find our locations and houses to change, but our home stays the same.”

The Salado Winery gallery will be filled with Ms. Tremblay's artwork, which will be available for sale throughout the spring.  Wines produced on the premise will be available for savoring as folks view and purchase these local art treasures.
