Metro Detroit art and wine lovers gathered at Art Leaders Gallery in West Bloomfield to celebrate the SEEN Magazine July 2022 Art + Wine issue. Three of the incredible artists featured in the issue, Martyna Alexander, Austen Brantley and Ivan Montoya mingled with guests and discussed their art work on display.

Jessica Youngblood, the owner of Youngblood Vineyard and her team walked guests through a tasting of six of their vintages: Prairie Star, Sherman Blanc, Rose of Petite Pearl, Marquette and Petite Pearl. Guests also enjoyed a fabulous charcuterie grazing table by R and B Charcuterie.

It was a perfect way to celebrate summer, art and wine!
