GAZE AND GRAZE: Visit Waxlander for the Edible Art Tour

Waxlander and Terra for ArtFeast 2012
It’s not every opening that we serve art on a platter. This Friday, February 22 we’re hosting Terra at Four Seasons Encantado during the Edible Art Tour, and the food will be as colorful as the canvases.

ARTfeast is an annual fundraiser for nonprofit ARTsmart, which provides opportunities for local kids to connect with the visual arts. The Edible Art Tour, ARTfeast’s most popular event, transforms 35 Canyon Road and downtown galleries into gourmet restaurants for an evening with the help of our area’s best chefs.

Chef Andrew Cooper of Terra will be our guest artist Friday evening. Andrew has over 20 years of experience all around the world, and has committed himself to bringing out the best in local cuisine wherever he is. His offerings are regional, seasonal, organic and modern.

While you’re visiting our pop-up eatery, make sure to satisfy your art cravings as well. We’ll have works on show from everyone in our stable. Sample the vibrant acrylics of Andree Hudson, drink in the glowing oils of Matthew Higginbotham and chew on the mythological sculptures of Rob Gigliotti.

Make sure to leave room for more delicious food and great art later in the weekend at ARTfeast’s Artists’ Champagne Brunch & Auction. Sharon Markwardt will represent Waxlander at the event on Sunday, and her vibrant artwork will be up for auction to benefit ARTsmart.

The Edible Art Tour is Friday, February 22 from 5-8 pm, and the Artists’ Champagne Brunch & Auction is Sunday, February 24 at 11:30 am. You can buy tickets for both events at Waxlander or on the ARTfeast website. Check out our Twitter and Facebook feeds for more information and updates.
