Art on the Vine at Mari's Wine Bar


Art, music and wine...a natural combination. Tonight Mari's Wine Bar hosted an art exhibition of four local artists. The turnout was great, the bar was full and the atmosphere was welcoming. I enjoyed wandering around with my Cabernet, admiring the art and chatting with old friends and new (I even ran into my neighbors). 

Presented by the Downey Arts Coalition, the event is intended to be a recurring opportunity to experience a wide variety of creative work, from visual art to poetry, to performing art.


The featured artists for this month are Jorge Del Toro, sculptor and abstract painter; Carolina Del Toro, photographer; Claudia Hernandez, photographer; Don Lamkin, artist.

We were even treated to a special performance from the legendary Phil Alvin from The Blasters.

The art will remain on display in Mari's for the remainder of the month. Going forward, each month "Art on the Vine" will feature new local artists. If you know a local artist who would be interested in participating in one of the exhibits, click here for the Downey Arts Coalition.
