Show Appreciation


How do you attract people like your very best clients? 

 THANK the ones you have.

Drawing on the tradition of the salon, invite select guests into an intimate and inspired conversation with nationally recognized artist, Ann Rea.

Learn about art and wine in a relaxed, fresh, and friendly way.

We begin with a sparkling wine reception.

Then the host introduces each guest by briefly thanking them for their business, contribution, or friendship.

This ignites an atmosphere of gratitude and appreciation.

One wine is paired with one oil painting. We learn a bit about the wine. Then the Artist teaches us how to look at a painting through the painter’s eyes.

Your perception of color will shift and you will never look at a painting the same way. Whether or not you or your guests are art or wine enthusiasts, this memorable gathering builds connection that comes from learning together.

Your thoughtful introductions will yield ever lasting conversational currency.

Art + Wine + Appreciation, an old tradition with a fresh new approach to events.

  • Ann Rea, a member of the National Speaker's Association, delivers an inspiring program.
  • The venue, libations, and food are your choice. We are happy to recommend our trusted strategic partners.
  • About a dozen guests is an ideal number for an intimate and connected gathering.

 "You were wonderful as always! We met our goal: Folks left happy and connected. A great experience and that always leads to conversational currency. Great evening enjoyed by all. Looking forward to another one soon!" 

-Heidi Faulkner (Sotheby's International Realty)

"Thank you for making me look so good. It was fun! Sipping wine with hard to reach, affluent folks, that I couldn't otherwise access, you made it so easy. Let's do it again!" 

-Raymond Rodriguez (First Republic Bank) 

"You did great blast night…rave reviews and huge accolades. The attendees loved the program and you, as did I. Thank you for a spectacular program."

-Alf Nucifora (Chairman of The Luxury Marketing Council)
