July 19, 2017  Stay tuned for our photos of the July 16th, 3rd Annual Show - we'll post them on this website shortly over the next several days... 

 July 17, 2017  Together we 'Made It Happen' thanks to the Quai du Vin Estate Winery, our Artists, Sponsors, Advertisers, Volunteers, Caterers, Special Guests, Family, Friends, Visitors and Well-Wishers.  The 3rd Annual OTW Art Show was truly an awesome day.  July 16 started off wonderfully in every way, and the weather was breezy and sunny until about 2:30, when the sky started to darken, the wind came up and the online weather radar showed a particularly nasty thunderstorm cell heading straight for us from the Sarnia area.  It was a tough call to make from the Winery to have the Artists pack up early, but everyone went home safely with their creative works in tack.  The storm arrived right at 5pm.  

Stay tuned for our photos of the July 16th, 3rd Annual Show

Thank you!

July 15, 2017 ~ Mother Nature has her reasons, but Sunday's weather online in Sparta / St. Thomas states the day is going to be 'interesting'.

We will make every attempt to make hourly updates from Quai du Vin on the status of the weather for our Visitors on this News Page, our OTW Home Page and our Facebook Page (Off The Wall Art Show).  Also, myFM Radio is scheduled to be on site at 1 PM to provide further live info.
