Art Uncorked: An Evening of Grape Expectations

If someone asked me to list my top ten indulgences I could quickly rattle off a few without blinking an eye - food, wine, shopping, and a night with friends. Certainly there are more in my list of ten with dark chocolate close to the top, next to quiet reading time. 

If you are anything like me, chances are good we have some of the same indulgent desires which is why I am so excited to share about Art Uncorked: An Evening of Grape Expectations, an event sponsored by the St. Charles City-County Library Foundation. Last year, fifteen talented artists shared their work while guests enjoyed foods from eleven area restaurants and caterers paired with wines from Three Squirrels Winery, Yellow Farmhouse Vineyard and Rolling Meadows Vineyard as well as beer from Exit 6 Brewery and O'Fallon Brewery. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it? 

This year, Art Uncorked will be held on Saturday, September 21st at the Kathryn Linnemann branch in St. Charles.  This will be the 5th annual event and each year, it gets bigger and better, gathering together more artists, wineries, restaurants, and breweries for one incredible night. 

The VIP Reception kicks off at 6:30pm and General Admission opens at 7:30pm. Guests meet artists, sample all the food and beverage delights, receive a commemorative wine glass, and bid on a variety of unique items from our silent auction. The evening will once again culminate with the Art Uncorked Raffle, the winner walking away with $1,500! Tickets are on sale now at

   Want to make Art Uncorked a truly great evening? Here is my advice: 
     If you are attending with a spouse or partnter: Get VIP tickets. Trust me, you will love the special events we have planned for you. 

     If you are looking for a fun night with the friends: Start planning now and get a group of 8-10 together. At only $25 a ticket for general admission, which includes your wine, beer, and food sampling, you are set for a fantastic night. 

     If you are an artist of any kind: We would love to have you with us at Art Uncorked! Contact Karen Guccione-Englert at the Library Foundation (636-441-2300 ext. 1517 or and join the fun. Even if you can’t attend for the evening, we would love to have a piece of your work for the silent auction. 
     If you want to grow your business or expand personal market: You need to come to this event! Last year over 225 people from the greater St. Charles County came out for a night of fun and to support the Library Foundation.  If you can’t come, make sure you are represented in some manner. Have an autographed book, your business services, or the like in our silent auction. Even better, become an Art Uncorked sponsor and we advertise for you!
