There are all sorts of great happenings in Ste. Genevieve this weekend. First of all, we are having a great band at the winery on Saturday from 1-4 p.m. They are called Vintage, and they are very entertaining. Then there is the Plein Air Artist Competition. Anybody can enter, and you paint a picture of Ste. Genevieve this week, and on Sunday you submit it, and they choose a winner. Last year my good friend, Chuck Drost, won the oil competition. If ever you're going to click on one of my links, Chuck's is the one to view. He is a very very talented artist, and he painted our Christmas Plum label, and we are currently working on other labels that I will unveil in due time. I'm pretty sure one of his first posts is of the painting that won last year. So, anyway, artists will be sitting, working, painting with their easle and canvas all over town, kind of like Paris or New Orleans in that respect. After the competition, the art is for sale is the artist chooses to sell it. There are many great artists in the Artists Guild, and they will all be showing and selling artwork all weekend.
Along with all that hand painted art, there will also be the Spirit Reunion in the Cemetary which I mentioned here. There is also an artisan craft show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
