The second thrilling edition of the Sip and Paint event is slated to take place this Saturday at the Beam campsite, behind Bull and Bush. Organised by The Store in partnership with Lengau Wine Company, the event offers revellers a one of a kind experience.
Highlights to look forward to include live sketches, wine pairings, gin and whiskey tastings from the Lengau Wine company products. Also to look forward to on the day is entertainment by Gauta Eyman, and live music by the one and only Cedric as well as Dj Kellz.
According to the organiser, Reba Sejoe, the event seeks to celebrate local art and the endorsement from Thapong Visual Arts Centre speaks to the creative energy it wants to cultivate. Also on the day, there will be exhibitions by local artists, and the revellers will have a chance to purchase a few art pieces.
Sejoe also explains that this trend has been growing across the world, as more and more people seek different experiences rather than just buying things. “Sip and Paint allows people to engage with art in a refreshing way. The first instalment held earlier in the year showed us that there is interest in this conceptual theme, and we decided to host it again,” she says.
She further says that the event is for anyone who wants to enjoy a fun filled and unique way to uncork their creativity over their favourite beverage, while creating wonderful pieces of art that they want to keep. “We will have delectable food, invigorating drinks, fresh vibes, lots of paint, canvas and only the best local art and photography art exhibitions,” she explains. Tickets are on sale at Webtickets for P350, inclusive of canvas, paint and complimentary wine and P200, excluding painting and complimentary wine.
