Show aids critters

 

Another Langley vineyard is getting into the arts and charity, with a show this weekend.

Following the lead of Township 7 Winery, the newly rebranded Backyards Vineyards on 232nd Street is hosting an art show featuring the works of Felicity Holmes.

While the show runs from Feb. 28 to March 9 at the winery, a reception on Friday night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. offers a chance for guests to meet the artist and help raise money for Critter Care.

All proceeds from a donated original canvas will be donated to the Langley wildlife rescue centre, Holmes explained.

As well, the winery is hosting a barbecue on Sunday, March 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. where a $10 beverage-and-burger deal will also help the local charity.

Holmes participated in last year’s art studio tour and Arts Alive, and has had her work displayed at the Mind and Matter art gallery.
