Proprietor Dustin Nichols was literally run ragged, as at least 200 art and wine lovers descended upon Old Town Cellar August 3rd for our “Art & Wine First Tuesday Reception” for the month of August. Featured were two newly installed galleries by Photographer Bart Aldrich and Metal Sculptors Ric & Tim Vigallon. Guests were treated to wine tasting hosted by Bennett Lane Winery and appetizers provided by Old Town Cellar and TKB Bakery.
Aldrich’s “Abstract Photo-Paintings” on brushed aluminum panels highlighted his gallery, along with favorites from his travel, and landscape collections. The Brothers Vigallon premiered several contemporary wine themed wall sculptures, creating quite a buzz among the patrons, not to mention their wild red metal hearts and lips displayed over the bar. All artwork will be on exhibit and for sale throughout the month of August at Old Town Cellar, 78015 Main St., Suite 109, Old Town La Quinta. Phone: 760-771-8950.
