The Lynnwood Arts Commission is inviting the community to an evening filled with regional wines and gourmet food tastings, art demonstrations and toe-tapping live music to celebrate and support the arts in Lynnwood at the second annual Art of Food and Wine.

Sponsored by the Lynnwood Arts Commission, the event will be at the Lynnwood Convention Center on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 5-9 p.m.

The arts commission, in partnership with Lynnwood Parks & Recreation Foundation, Lynnwood Convention Center and Seattle Uncorked, have expanded this annual community event to support public art projects in the Lynnwood for the 2020. Due to last year’s success and feedback, the event will be on Saturday night (rather than Friday) so attendees do not have to rush home from work. With more live music, more artists and more food tastings as compared to last year, the event will run an hour longer.

The evening’s entertainment lineup will feature live music from The Ampere Collective, a spunky quintet that plays fusion, soul and jazz; Funk n Groove, with their infectious blend of funk, rock and pop; and solo guitarist and songwriter Joshua Blatman. 

Local artists who will display their works include woodworker Bill Grader, encaustic artist Sharon Grader, pastel and oil artist Janis Graves, oil painter Kathleen Moore, and whimsical ceramic sculptor Mike O’Day.

Foodies will delight at the selection of gourmet bites from local restaurants Anthony’s Seafood Grill, Chef Dane Catering, Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar, Navi’s Catering Kitchen, and the chefs of the Lynnwood Convention Center. More are expected, so keep checking the website for updates.
