ATTN ART LOVERS:  Step up and watch our talented artist members UNCORK their creativity.  A new collaboration - ART UNCORKED - will be setup in the indoor construction zone of the future home of the Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Room and Art Gallery at 54301 North Circle.  Formerly the Grey Squirrel, what better way to feature our local artists and kick-off Middle Ridge Winery's newest endeavor.  Their long time connection with the Art Alliance of Idyllwild, including Idyllwild Deer Sightings, is the perfect venue for UNCORKING talent!    

  • Saturday 10am-5pm (Art Show)
  • Saturday 6pm-7:30pm (Reception)
  • Sunday, 10am-3pm (Art Show)

The first pop-up art gallery of its kind in Idyllwild, we will have your favorite exhibits along with a few new twists!

  • Our Judged Art Show celebrating our artists.
  • Our popular "Under $100 Art Gallery".  
  • NEW!  An "Under Construction" exhibit featuring artwork in progress.
  • NEW!  Live demonstrations by artist members.
  • NEW!  Student Membership Drive.     

An interactive experience, in additional to the indoor art show - some of our ART UNCORKED artists will be setup under umbrellas on Saturday outside the Middle Ridge Art Gallery as well as at some of our member galleries creating pieces of artwork.  Maps will be available both days to direct you to the doorsteps of each unique gallery member.   

Come join us at this open-to-the-public event during both days and attend the artist reception on Saturday evening where we will be featuring Middle Ridge Winery's newest wine called Lily Rock Cellars along with the newest vintage of their very popular Pinot Grigio.  Held at 54301 N. Circle Drive in Idyllwild, there is no entry fee to attend the event. 

This is another weekend full of art.  Great art.  Great galleries.  Great wine.  Come purchase one-of-a-kind art and be the first to see Middle Ridge Winery's vision for their future tasting room and art gallery.
