Local Cattaraugus artist Dawn Lombardi will be showcasing her artwork this Saturday, Aug. 4, at Murphy’s Gourmet & Wine Shop. Julie Murphy, owner of the shop, has known Dawn “for a very, very long time,” and as friends and fellow businesswomen in Cattaraugus, decided this would be a creative pairing.
“Who doesn’t love a little wine and a little art?” joked both women.
“This gives people a chance to get to know what kinds of gourmet foods and local New York wines are carried in the store, and a chance to view Dawn’s artwork at the same time, in a casual and relaxed setting,” said Murphy.
A new, dry Reisling from Johnson Estate Wines will be featured, as well as white ipocras spritzers and plenty of gourmet food tastings.
Lombardi will be introducing some new pieces from her “mini” collection, which are 3” x 3” and 3” x 4” acrylics. Her landscapes are composed of basic shapes and colors in a fun and whimsical presentation. She can be reached at (716) 597-6049, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Murphy’s Wine & Gourmet Shop, 18 Main St. in Cattaraugus. Call (716) 258-9215 for more information.
