Enjoy local art and wines at the Sunrise Beach Village Sip & Stroll Art Show and Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, at The Driftwood, 118 Sunrise Drive. The event benefits the Sunrise Beach Volunteer Fire Department.

“We didn’t get to have it last year because of COVID, so we’re excited to be able to hold it this year,” said Nancy Daniel, one of the Sip & Stroll organizers. “When we were looking for a way to support the fire department, we wanted something that was unique and something that reflected the Hill Country and the community.

“Art and wine, those are two things that celebrate this area,” she added.

Sip & Stroll admission is free, but tickets for the wine pull are $25. A silent auction is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes a number of pieces of art and other items.

A wine pull, Daniel explained, is when a person purchases a ticket that corresponds with a “hole” containing a bottle of wine. The holder doesn’t know what wine matches their ticket, but finds out when they turn in the ticket and pull the bottle from the hole.

“Everybody’s a winner,” Daniel said. “The value of the wine they’re getting is more than the price of the ticket.”

The event features wines and wineries from across the Texas Hill Country. The art show displays the work of about 31 artists, including Marble Falls sculptor Harry Angel and Jersey Village (Texas) sculptor Leroy Narendorf.

“Those are just a couple of the incredible artists we have bringing items, and each has donated an item for the silent auction,” Daniel said.

The show also has oil paintings, watercolors, jewelry, wreaths, stained glass, and photography. Several artists will be working on site so people can watch them create and even ask questions about their process.

“It’s going to be a fun day and a great way to support the fire department,” Daniel added.

As per the Sunrise Beach VFD, face coverings will be required at the event. Visit the Sip & Stroll webpage for more information.
