B Square Gallery To Host “The Art Of Giving”: Purchase Chaddsford Wine With Labels Designed By More Than 50 Local Artists For Charity

After a very successful event last year, The (no name) Art Group is returning to B Square Gallery for its 2nd Annual Art of Giving; and this time the event is bigger and better, with more artists participating and an all-day celebration.

The (no name) Art Group invited 50 local artists to create custom wine labels to be affixed to bottles of Chaddsford Winery wine (either Sunset Blush, Proprietor’s Red, or Proprietor’s White).

The labels go on display October 27; the reception is October 29 from noon to 9 p.m. Proceeds will benefit Philabudance, the region’s largest hunger relief organization.

Here’s how it works: From the original labels on display at the gallery, you choose your favorite (or favorites), then you choose a bottle(s) (Red, White, or Blush), and they put a print of that label on your bottle. There are 365 bottles for sale (at $25 apiece; $15 of each sale will go to Philabundance) and once they’re gone, they’e gone.

You can also purchase just the label for $10 each will all the proceeds going to organization.

In addition to wine and labels, some of the artists will be selling their original labels and sculptor Sandra Webberking has donated one of her beautifully crafted wine displays for the occasion.

Check out artwork from last year’s exhibition here, and below.
