The Bankhead Theater lobby will be open Saturday, June 29 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. for a summertime "Art & Wine Intertwined" event that is also the closing reception for the current "Go Figure" Exhibit.

Wine tastings as well as live music and light refreshments are offered throughout the afternoon.

Local wines from McGrail Vineyards, Boa Ventura Vineyards, White Crane Winery, and Mia Nipote will be featured. The jazz music of Wombo Combo with Andrew Mathers will enliven the afternoon event.

Currently on display in the Bankhead Gallery is “Go Figure,” an exhibit celebrating the diversity of spirit, style, and emotion expressed in the human figure through the eyes of 26 artists.

A concurrent exhibit in the Founders Room, adjacent to the Bankhead lobby, are six original works by E. Trent Thompson from his “Pictures for People” project. His large scale works were designed to highlight the needs of others in the community and the sale of the project’s pieces raised funds to support local organizations that help people in need. This will be the last week to view “Go Figure” before it closes July 7 to make way for a new exhibit. Many pieces are available for sale and purchase arrangements can be made during the event.

Hosted by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, “Art & Wine Intertwined” is free and open to the public. Tastings are $2 each or three for $5 and light appetizers will be served.
