Are you art obsessed? Perhaps you can’t tell a Degas from a Dali, but you know what you like when you see it. Whether you're an expert or appreciate great works, surrounding yourself with creativity and fine art is inspirational and, when you pair that with food, it’s a unique experience that you won't want to miss. Appetite for Art is once again taking place in Nelson on February 22 and is a celebration of artistic expression in both the visual arts and in cuisine. This is the fifth year this popular event is held.

The Nelson District Arts Council and the West Coast Grill organizes the fundraiser every year. The annual gathering has three objectives: it shines a spotlight on the works of local artists, it showcases exquisite culinary offerings from local restaurants and wineries, and it raises money on behalf of the Nelson District Arts Council to support youth programs.

The event is organized just like a gallery showing where attendees can freely browse the selection of artwork with a glass of wine in hand. All the pieces displayed are available for purchase, so you'll have an opportunity to bring home a fine work of art, all the while supporting a wonderful organization and the local community.

The Prestige Inn and Lakeside Resort will once again be hosting Appetite For Art this year. The event starts at 7 pm and concludes at 9 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the West Coast Grill front desk.
