The Rabbit Valley Farmers Market has partnered with The Georgia Winery, Ringgold Art and Frame Gallery, and Farm to Fork to bring a fun summer evening to Ringgold.
“This is a wonderful collaboration of many businesses to support the local arts and to emphasize how important art is to any thriving community,” Rabbit Valley Market Manager Samantha Martin said. “We are grateful to the many artists in our community and hope to showcase them often through events such as this one.”
The event will be Friday, July 23, from 6-9 p.m. at the Market Pavilion at 96 Depot St. in Ringgold. Admission is free.
Local artists from the Art and Frame Gallery will display and sell their art, as well as a few art vendors from the farmer’s market.
Attendees can buy wine to sip while they shop and browse the local art being showcased. Charcuterie plates and desserts will be available for purchase from local food vendors Molly Pie Golly and Taste of Europe Delights. The market will also be decked out with mural art from local nonprofit youth center The Lift.
Live music will be provided by local musicians Eric Kirkendoll and Sam Steadman, and there are tables provided by the city of Ringgold for shoppers to sit and enjoy their food and the music.
Local artist and teacher Katie Dwyer will hold a Paint and Sip Class during this event from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The class will offer artists of all skill levels a chance to relax and paint an adorable cow on canvas. Cost of the class is $30 and includes all supplies. Call 423-903-1379 to sign up for the class; space is limited.
