Great Art Show, Great Food and Great Wine!


Wall of fabulous art

What a great art show here at Oatlands this year!  The show opens to the general public today, and we had our Preview Party last night for Oatlands members, as well as the artists and their fans and families!  Joan Wolford from Savoir-Fare, Limited did her usual exquisite job with the catering.  There was a Southern theme, with mini portions of shrimp and grits (too good to describe), pork bbq sliders, and fried chicken po’ boys.  Not to mention that incredible crab dip and the desserts which were worth every extra treadmill minute.  THANK YOU Savoir-Fare! 

Corcoran Vineyards, our partnering winery, was here with a lovely Chardonnay and Mary’s Cuvee, a heavenly red that Lori created with Mary Watson-DeLauder.  Lori Corcoran and Mary Watson-DeLauder are on Fox 5 News this morning talking about Virginia wine.  We really appreciate Lori and Jim Corcoran being here for Oatlands last night.  Lori had to be up before dawn this morning to do her spot on Fox 5, and we know she lost sleep for Oatlands!  THANK YOU Corcoran Vineyards!

And THANKS to the artists and art patrons who make the Oatlands show such a huge success every year.  This is our 12th year and every show is better than the last.  The show runs through July 25, so come out and see the wonderful work our local artists have done. 

Room full of fabulous people!
