Cedar Creek Estate Winery
Barrel Art Auction
In support of Kelowna’s Life & Arts Festival
Louise Lambert has been selected along with several other well know artists from the Okanagan Valley artist to create her own unique, one-of-a-kind Wine Barrel Art from a barrel that was donated by CedarCreek Estate Winery. The Wine Museum in Kelowna, now permanently displays this painted French oak barrel entitled Vine Time.
Similar to the Napa Valley Barrel Art Auction, which raised $100,000 for local charities, Cedar Creek Estate Winery wished to commemorate its 20 th Anniversary “A Toast to 20 Years” by rolling its own Barrel Art Auction in support Kelowna’s Life and Arts Festival.
The Art Auction created a wine-region themed art opportunity for Kelowna with a series of permanent wine-themed works to celebrate wine and art and its connection to the greater culture of Kelowna.
“The Barrel Art program is one of the highlights our 20 th Anniversary ‘A Toast to 20 Years’ celebration ” comments CedarCreek President, Gordon Fitzpatrick. “We wanted to do something special to mark our 20 th and thought the Barrel Art to be unique way to celebrate our Okanagan lifestyle which is enhanced by art and wine. We are extremely thankful to the artists who shared our vision and enthusiastically immersed themselves in this new wine-art program.”
