CALL TO ARTISTS
Faith Hope & Charity Vineyards, hoping to stage an Art in the Vineyards event.
Dear Fellow Artists,
A wonderful opportunity has come to our attention. Cindy Grossmann, owner of Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards (FHC), has let the SAA know that she would like to host an event tentatively called “Art in the Vineyard.”
Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards is a gorgeous venue located on Lower Bridge Road in Terrebonne. Susie Zeitner, Mel Archer, and I met at the vineyard with Cindy and Michelle, the event coordinator and assistant.
The vineyard has many events, weddings, parties, and many concerts. They have a large list of clients and visitors and a marketing program. Artists should activate their own social media platforms and invite their contacts.
With that said, a potential event has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 or 5 p.m. This would NOT be an SAA sponsored event, but SAA artists are encouraged to participate. You would have your own space in one of several areas around the property and near the main gazebo. You would handle your own sales, and yes, they have good WiFi coverage all over. We talked about the vineyard also having musicians, food, and wine around the venue.
The cost is $35 per artist. Due to COVID restrictions, each artist will have to provide their own pop-up tent. There are two small events already booked at the vineyard that day, but they can provide us with potentially more buyers.
Michelle will draw up a map with locations for the artists on the vineyard, along with load-in and move-out times. She’ll also provide me (Terri) with registration forms that I’ll send out to every artist who’s interested. Artists can return the form to FHC along with the $35 registration fee.
OSHA and the Oregon Health Authority have approved events held at the Vineyard this summer.
Obviously, this is short notice, but given that most of us are almost ready because of the Studio Tour, we could be ready, right?
If you are interested you must respond to me by Oct. 1. I should also mention that FHC has suggested that if this works, there will more opportunities such as their Christmas market and summer events could be organized in the future.
Are you ready? I’m excited!
