Jeans and Tonic Fundraiser: The Shenandoah Arts Council hosts the third annual “ Jeans & Tonics” event at 811 S. Loudoun Street this Saturday from 7pm to 10pm.. Live music, original art on display, and the creation of art by attendees all take place at this fun party.

Jeans & Tonics, a fund raiser for the Arts Council, is a play on words: it is “casual attire” – jeans – and features the summer classic – the gin & tonic.  Two bands will perform, Hot Club of Millwood, outside under the tent, while the Potato Hill String Band will perform in the gallery.  During the party, professional artists who teach at Opus Oaks in Berryville will guide party-goers in the creation of a new canvas. “It is a fun, casual event to kick off summer and to celebrate artists from our region, both musicians and visual artists,” says Robert Lesman, Board Chair for the Arts Council.

The original artwork for the ArtScape 2012 Banner program will be for sale at the event.  ArtScape banners grace the downtown Pedestrian Mall from April till December, creating an outdoor gallery experience for residents and tourists alike. ArtScape, a collaboration with the Old Town Development Board, celebrates our talented regional artists and brightens Winchester’s historic downtown district.
