Wine Art at Downtown Lake Mary

Mark Your Calendar, Wine Art Wednesdays happens on the first Wednesday of every month in Downtown Lake Mary, (101 N 4Th St Lake Mary, FL).  The park is already decked out in Christmas lights which wrap around tree trunks.The sidewalks are lined with merchants and displays from local artists. Relax and unwind to some live music while sipping a glass of wine from the new beer and wine garden in Central Park or dig into some eats from some of the best food trucks and newest restaurants in Downtown Lake Mary. 

After exploring the dozen or so artists tents, I decided to sketch this odd police tricycle. A little ten year old boy was just as intrigued as I was and the policeman crouched down to talk to him. After I had it blocked in, a policeman hopped on and rode around the event. The food truck always had a short line.  I'm sure more food and drink was being sold than art. Perhaps edible art would sell.

Thomas, one of the artists who had a tent, came over to see what I was up to. He does pencil drawings and he bragged that he used the cheapest dollar store pencils he can find. Most tents had crafts items which might be good to buy for the Christmas season. Brazilian steel drum players were performing on the make shift stage in the park. An area near the stage was fenced off as the beer garden. It had picnic tables so you could relax and listen to music while you drank.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
