Sherry Abbate-Witkowksi is an artist and a proud member of The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV). As someone who loves where she lives, she had a vision for an art show featuring local talent that would be staged at the perfect venue, Taylor Brooke Winery. Taylor Brooke, celebrating its 12th anniversary in 2016, is also a strong champion for the region and a long-standing TLGV business partner.
“Keep your heart brave & your imagination wild” was the driving force as Sherry gathered artists and organized the event details. With sixteen local artists showing off forty pieces of art during the collaborative art show, Sherry’s vision came to life. A portion of the artists’ entry fees were earmarked for donations to The Last Green Valley’s conservation efforts and one generous artist donated a portion of her sales to TLGV, too.
“We are grateful for Sherry’s creativity and enthusiasm in pulling together such a wonderful event and fundraiser for TLGV,” commented TLGV Executive Director Lois Bruinooge. “Taylor Brooke Winery’s 12th anniversary celebration provided the perfect backdrop for the artists, and we are also grateful for owners Linda and Richard Auger’s continued support.”
