Uncorked – A Wine Themed Juried Art Exhibition

Intoxicating, earthy, silky, bold…

The relationship between wine and art have a rich history. With origins predating written records, these two have flowed in harmony.  The culture of wine has been associated with life, health, Greek mythology, religious rituals, and countless civilizations inspiring artists, poets, and historians without fail.

The Moses Lake Museum & Art Center offers the opportunity to submit artworks inspired by your appreciation of all things wine.  Located in the high desert central Washington climate, we are paying homage to our region’s fruitful ethos and talented artists.

Interpret the subject of wine through your own imaginative understanding.  Uncorked will not only celebrate wine but present and captivate art and wine lovers with a fresh perspective. This juried group exhibition seeks to showcase a range of mediums, interpretations, and styles. Release your creativity and show us how wine has inspired you!
