Guelph Arts Council Celebrates 40th Anniversary with a Retro Wine Tasting
Guelph, ON – October 22, 2015 – Guelph Arts Council is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a ’70s-themed “Vintage Fête” at the River Run Centre, Thursday November 19 at 7 pm.
This community event will feature a wine and art pairing and tasting with sommelier Brian Lauder, a silent auction, and special guests Mayor Cam Guthrie and the Royal City Ukulele Ensemble.
Arts Council Chair Cynthia Kinnunen says the event will be a fun way for local artists and arts supporters to network. “We’re so fortunate to have such a vibrant arts community in Guelph. This is a great chance to get together for some wine and retro fun.”
Guelph’s was one of the first arts councils in Ontario. It has served as a voice for the arts and artists and has been instrumental in the development of organizations such as Macdonald Stewart Arts Centre (now Art Gallery of Guelph), Guelph Chamber Choir, Guelph Civic Museum, the River Run Centre, Guelph Youth Singers, Royal City Musical Productions and many more.
“Guelph’s lively cultural scene is a testament to the strong role that Guelph Arts Council has played over the past 40 years in terms of cultural development and support,” says Sally Wismer, who served as executive director of the council from 1988 until 2010. “That’s certainly something to celebrate.”
