A good portrait moves beyond depiction of a person's likeness to a commentary on humanity. Paintings and photographs in this exhibition are portraits of local individuals who portray features of our cultural environment and are part of the fabric of our community. Dick Beeman, Clive Fullagar and Luke Townsend are all local artists living in Manhattan. None of them have formal training in art.

Another fan favorite returns to the winery for their summer music series---Everyday Lights is a group of Salina-based musicians with a love for folk and jazz rhythms. Their unique instrumentation and improvised harmony gives them a fresh, creative sound that is best realized in their original music. Their ability to combine a variety of musical styles including folk, country, rock and bluegrass always keeps the audience guessing and looking forward to the next song.
Grab some friends, circle up around the patios, and soak in the last of summer!
