A taste of wine and art at Galer Estate

Galer Estate Vineyard & Winery in Kennett Square PA, is saying "Cheers" to The Chester County Studio Tour with pop-up art shows occurring on most every open day during Spring and Summer.  These exciting shows will feature a different local artist's work every weekend.

Galer Estate Winery is open Thursday through Sunday during the Spring and Summer months, and often hosts art shows, non-profits, literary and art talks, book signings and more throughout the year.  This season, the winery is showcasing the works of the local artists of The Chester County Studio Tour.  The art shows are free to the public and the artists keep 100% of their artwork sales. There are 179 artists participating in the Studio Tour May 20 and 21.  Thirty or more of these artists are showing at Galer Estate Winery this season in 4 hour "pop-up" art shows at the winery.

"Exhibiting art and providing a place to show and talk about art in our winery seems like a natural combination to me! It is all about creating - great art, a beautiful venue, delicious wines… Plus it is a lot of fun.  It brings needed attention to the artists in our area and makes for a terrific creative atmosphere at the winery. " says artist and winery co-owner Lele Galer

Most of the artists showing at the winery this season will also be exhibiting at the famous Chester County Studio Tour in May 20 and 21, a county-wide art show that brings tens of thousands of art lovers to Chester County for a great weekend of art fun.  For a sneak peek at some of the art and artists from this year's tour, check out Galer Estate Winery throughout the Spring months for great pop-up art shows and delicious award-winning wines too.
