Friendly faces, beautiful artwork, lunch, professional musical entertainment and fine local wines were the theme of the weekend for those attending the Ribbonwood Art Guild Winter Art Show at the Emerald Creek Winery in Warner Springs.

The show was held Saturday, Jan. 25, and Sunday, Jan. 26, in the winery tasting room.

Over a dozen Ribbonwood Art Guild members were on hand, displaying their crafts, acrylic works, watercolor paintings, pen and ink renderings, sculpture, woodwork items, jewelry and more. Artistic pieces were offered for sale as well as for display. Dozens of art fans left the event with treasures in hand.

Rosie Grindle exhibited her equestrian-themed paintings, as Dan Hare sat with his realistically rendered oil paintings and mingled with fans. Susan Gonzales displayed her unique leatherworks while Bob and Cathy Cochran presented their popular handmade wooden toys. Tish Clark was on hand with her decorative wind chimes and jewelry collection. Many other guild artists were present for a showing of local creative talent.

The event was catered by Adriana Dominguez of Adriana’s Cocina.

The Crazy Creek band entertained art and wine aficionados with powerhouse blues, country and rock tunes.

The entire weekend show was a delight for locals and visitors alike.

The Emerald Creek Winery, located just past the county line into San Diego county on Highway 79 South, offers wine, entertainment and food. Managed by Kathleen Veasey and Joe Cici, the winery is known for hosting the arts and music from local sources. The hosts greeted visitors with their knowledge of wines, grapes and wine making.
