Paris on Paseo Event, Oct. 6 & 7 in OKC

Call for Oklahoma Wineries.

Here's a great chance to get your Oklahoma wines some exposure in Oklahoma's largest market...OKC. If you operate an Oklahoma winery, have a look at the letter below from Alma Hepp, Secretary for The Paseo Artists Association.

I am seeking Wineries to participate in an event that needs Oklahoma Wineries in The Paseo Arts District, N. W. 30th and Paseo, Oklahoma City, OK.

We are about 20 art studios/galleries in the Only Art District In Oklahoma, according to AAA Magazine. We have some pretty large events in our Art District. Some of the Oklahoma Wineries have held wine tastings in my Studio - Carousels & More - on First Fridays.

The Paseo Artists Association is having a 'Paris on Paseo' event, Oct. 6 & 7, 2006.

  • Oct. 6 will also be our well attended First Friday event for October.
  • Oct. 7 is our First Saturday Gallery Walk for October.

Paris is our theme. This event has been annual for about 11 years. We will have artists outside our own community come, set up on the street, and ply their art, be it painting, sculpting, sketching, whatever.

The theme is Artists and Their Model. People come, watch them, (enjoy the wine tastings), have refreshments we furnish, and purchase items. Artists in studios dress a little 'Frenchy'. Paseo metal sculptor, Collin Rosebrook of Paseo Pottery, is going to construct an Eiffel Towel of 'found metal objects' which will be a permanent item on Paseo.

We will also have - outside in the shade - a fine craft sale with selected crafts people doing fine crafts and selling. We will also have a children's area of them building their own Eiffel Tower and they will be judged.The gist of this is - PAA (Paseo Artists Association) would like to have as many Oklahoma Wineries set up in our studios to have wine tastings as we can get. I know not all can come, I know some are further away from Oklahoma City.

We, in the studios, can furnish tables, coverings, crackers, napkins, and good will if you can bring your wines, give tastings and sell your wares if you want to. We encourage you to bring your advertising materials, a sign if you have one and come prepared to enjoy the Paris On Paseo event at The Paseo Art District. We will be having several guest artist openings during that time also.

Please consider this event and participate. I have had several Oklahoma wineries in my studio on various First Fridays and they will vouch, I hope, that we try to make it an enjoyable event each time. --- Alma Hepp, Secretary, Paseo Artists Association

It really sounds like a fun event!
