On Oct. 27, from 5 to 8 p.m., the Granby Land Trust and the Granby Artists Association will open their 11th annual juried art show featuring artwork that highlights New England’s natural beauty. The show, which will run through Nov. 27, will be held at the beautiful Lost Acres Vineyard in North Granby. Nearly 200 artists, art aficionados and friends of the Granby Land Trust turn out for the show’s opening night each year, and we expect the same to happen this year. The free event is catered; and each guest is offered a glass of wine, compliments of Lost Acres Vineyard. It is at this event that the Land Trust awards more than $5,000 in awards to the artists.
If you can’t make it to the opening, you can visit the show through Nov. 27 (during Vineyard hours: Friday and Saturday, 12-6 p.m.; Sunday 12-5 p.m.). All art is for sale, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Granby Land Trust.
