Join the wineries of the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival and Artcenter Traverse City for the opening reception of Art and the Garden on Friday, June 8th from 6-8 PM. The new 630 Mercato space in Building 50 at the Village at Grand Traverse Commons will be transformed into a stunning gallery featuring works of art of all kinds that celebrate the garden.
