Grapevine, Texas, is known near and far for its wineries, festivals, entertainment venues and bustling historic district. With the recent formation of the Grapevine Art Dealers Association (GADA), it is also becoming recognized as a fine art destination. To promote the city's artistic offerings and member galleries, GADA will host its inaugural Fall Gallery Night October 5, 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. along Main Street (galleries are listed in recommended order of visit):

Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery

According to Patricia Dane Bodnyk, owner of Holder Dane Gallery and Art Studios, GADA Fall Gallery Night will showcase an amazing variety of fine art ranging from the finest of western paintings and graceful hand blown vases to horses in bronze by Linda Lewis-Roark, the new resident sculptor and owner of the Grapevine Foundry.

"The GADA Fall Gallery Night showcases the fine arts in Grapevine by offering a delightful evening of high quality art for art lovers to collect and enjoy while sampling each gallery’s signature food and drink," she said, noting the Spring Gallery Night held in May was the first GADA event and the response was overwhelmingly positive from both galleries and guests.  "We want to let art patrons throughout Dallas Fort Worth come to know and seek out the thriving new art community in Grapevine."

Complimentary food and beverages will be served at each gallery via progressive style, including wine and signature cocktails, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be live music at sunset at the Train Depot, where Vetro Glassblowing Studio and Holder Dane Gallery are located. Gallery owners and artists will be on hand to answer questions and facilitate purchases. There is no cost to attend the inaugural GADA Fall Gallery Night.
