On Thursday, October 10, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., the art and wine event unfolds on a scenic sweep of Merrick Village Park. Visitors browse Artrageous Gallery's collection as live '60s and '70s jazz music permeates the air. Wines from Spain and Argentina pair with empanadas and other hors d'oeuvres throughout the event.
Maykel Herrera's "Expedicion," a mixed-media-on-canvas piece, depicts a little girl sprouting two arching feathers and gazing at a lighthouse. Works like this have made Herrera one of Cuba's most renowned living artists, and he is just one of the many talented artists represented by Artrageous Gallery. The gallery offers a mix of well-known and up-and-coming artists working in styles from pop art to surrealism. Guests can gawk at the artwork within the spacious gallery or catch glimpses at outdoor events.
