STOP #3 on the May ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm

Some people seem to really appreciate it when there is wine on the ART BUS tour. This month those people will be happy to know that we will be visitingGinkgo Forest Winery. Ginkgo Forest is an estate winery, growing 15 varietals in the Wahluke Slope AVA. All of the wines are made at the winery near Mattawa, along the Columbia River. Mike Thiede, grower/winemaker, is producing consistent award-winners. The Tasting Room has a nice selection of white, red, and dessert wines, and is open Wednesday through Sunday. Ask about the Wine Club. Wine by the taste, glass & bottle.

The art exhibit features the work of Rosalind Philips Photography. Rosalind has pursued her love of the outdoors through photography. Much of her work focuses on birds, particularly the Great Blue Heron.This selection of photographs are from her Galapagos Island trip, Antarctica trip, Churchill Canada trip, and birding expeditions around the United States. Rosalind also enjoys sharing her photographic expertise through teaching. Contact her to schedule your private or small group lesson.
All photographs are available in different sizes and with custom framing.
To see more of Rosalind’s work or to schedule a lesson, visit her website

There will be games, prizes, a celebrity tour guide, swag and more not to mention delicious pizza provided by Puget Sound Pizza and terrific local art exhibits. 

We like the sound of "the Mayor in May" and we have had the Mayor as the celebrity tour guide in May before but she's out of town this time so we invited another local celebrity, the "Mayor" of Hilltop Rand Chiarovano, co-owner of Hilltop Loans! Come and find out how he got this nickname!
