Wine and dine with local artists of the past

The Medford Arts Center is inviting community members to enjoy gourmet American food, local wines and fine art during an event called “Wine and Dine with Famous Artists of the Past”.

The event will be held at Zinc Café, located at 679 Stokes Rd., on Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.

Valenzano Winery of Shamong will provide wines to complement each course. Three New Jersey artists will be featured, including Patience Lovell Wright from the 18th Century, Asher Brown Durand from the 19th Century and Joe Brown from the 20th Century. Samples of each artist’s works will be presented, along with anecdotes about their lives.

“The fresh New Jersey food and local wines will be delicious,” Event Coordinator Cathy Livingstone said, “And there will be interesting activities and surprises along the way. Best of all, the evening will benefit the Medford Arts Center.”

Tickets are $40 for MAC members and $45 for non-members. Reservations for the event may be made online at www.artsinmedford.org or at the MAC, which is located at 18 N. Main St. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. For more information, call 609–654–6485.
