The Woodstock Art Gallery’s popular Taste of Art fundraiser is making its grand return on September 23, 2023, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Launched in 2015, Taste of Art has been on hiatus for the last three years due to the pandemic. We are excited to welcome our community back in person for a raucous night of artful experiences, bodacious beverages and local cuisine!

This year's event will take over all three floors of the Woodstock Art Gallery with stations for sampling and tastings from local food and craft beverage producers, music, live performances, art activities and more!

Thank you to our sponsors!

Theatre Woodstock Kennedy Wilson and Nikki Sloan will perform a playlet titled Belles of the West End written by Thomas Hischuk as part of a larger series of plays called Standing Room Only. This funny little playlet focuses on the lives of two British Char Women who are cleaning the stage of a high-end theatre in the ritzy West-End section of London, England.

D'eve Archer D’eve Archer has performed in various locations worldwide, never staying in one physical location for very long. The stage became her home as she blended musical elements of her Jamaican heritage, with her small town Canadian upbringing, all shaped by a classical training in music. 

The Traveling Tapster With two special cocktails created for Taste of Art, The Traveling Tapster will demonstrate how to prepare each drink and share the history of the alcohol used in the beverages.
