Hello All,

A collection of paintings by Helene Ruiz entitled “Exploring the Harmonies of Urban Life and Sunflower Melodies”  will be on display here in our tasting room from October  28-November 12. The exhibit is open to the public from 11 am to 6 pm on weekends and other days by appointment.

Ruiz is known for her intriguing urban landscapes, a body of work that might be described as surreal, but which portrays  the reality of her affection for life in a complex, multicultural, urban setting.  She celebrates the art, music and beauty of the city scene with wide angled perspective, and to see these paintings is to share her enjoyment.

Much of Ruiz’s work has been produced in New York City, where she organized the Urban Individualists, an artist’s collective.  Today she works from her home in Virginia.   She has  exhibited her paintings in numerous shows both nationally and internationally.  Over the years she has received numerous grants and awards in recognition of her contributions to the arts.

We hope you’ll come by for a look at these pictures and a glass of wine!
