Art the Vine with Wendy and Lorrie


Jun 14,2018 - Time: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Because of the overwhelming response for the Pallet Flag at the most recent Art of The Vine, we have decided to do another one for June.  This time, you will have a choice of creating the American flag or the NC State Flag on a pallet.  The 4th of July is right around the corner and what better way to decorate your yard or porch than this patriotic display.  If you want to do the NC State flag, be sure to sign up early so we can have all the additional supplies needed   Bring your favorite adult beverage with you and let your patriotism show!  You will be making either one of these beautiful flags to take home and display.  Advance tickets are $32.  Tickets are $35 at the door.

Come on out to Falling Rivers Gallery and set your inner artist free!
