Always looking for new painting references and I have found some great bar art for my paintings.
It’s been a great beginning to the new year. I’m totally obsessed with my Wine and Beer Paintings in Asheville but even better we are now in South Carolina! I’m excited that I have also added restaurant hospitality type paintings like these from the Wicked Weed Funkatorium. They were the sponsors of the Festival of Artistry that we were showing at in November. The painting here is “We’re So Funkful” and it’s been hanging in the Woolworth Walk Featured Artist area for the month of January. This canvas is 20×30 1.5 gallery wrap and it’s $650.00 if you want to contact me. I haven’t had time to put it into the shop yet but will soon.
I had eight new original canvas mixed media there and a great opening party! In case you don’t know “beer lingo” Funk is for Sour Beer and the Funkatorium has some delicious ones that will surprise you!
Lots more has been happening and there are two new galleries representing Marilyn Sholin Fine Art paintings. In Seneca SC the lovely Crystal has opened a beautiful space and will have her grand opening next week at Lolbolly Arts. Check her website and scroll down the list of artists and find me!
Another gallery I’m excited about is in Charleston SC right on King Street. We are headed out with a car full of Wine, Beer and Coffee original canvas to fill a wall at Art Mecca of Charleston.
Had a fun Art of Wine Event at Post 25 this week and met so many people interested in my wine paintings and sold some prints of wine and beer paintings and working on a few custom orders also. I have a on going exhibit there in metal paintings on their walls. My newest Patron painting will be there next month. After that the next night we went to Downtown Asheville to a wine tasting and meeting at Metro Wines. We had a great time and tasting meeting Melissa Ward and Patty Wright finding out all about the new wine bar coming to downtown Rustic Grape Wine Bar opening soon! Nice to meet Gina who does all the blogging for Metro Wine. Keep up with all their events on their blog.
Until next week keep up on my Facebook page to follow what is new with my bar art paintings and where to find them!

Beer and wine are probably 75% art and with a little bit of science in the mix. That being the case, it is neat to see “art imitating art” so effectively….Your paintings are absolutely beautiful!
Hi Marilyn, Have you relocated to Charleston? My daughter and family just moved there in January from Chicago. I spent a week there helping them get settled and can’t wait to get back.
I love “We’re So Funkful”! Is it available to purchase?
We live in Asheville NC but my art is in. Charleston gallery on King St. We are so Funkful is one of my personal favorites.
It is available as prints and on dye infused vivid metals.
The original is owned by the bar owner
Let me know what you would like and I’ll take care of it for you.
