Dante Launches Artists Series to Support Local Art and Food

Dante Launches Artists Series to Support Local Art and Food

For Immediate Release

March 12, 2010 – Tremont, OH

Dante restaurant in Tremont, a big supporter of local artists and local food, kicks off seasonal art shows featuring changing art with a changing menu.

The first cocktail party in the series takes place Sunday, March 28 from 6 - 8pm at Dante. The party will feature large scale photographs by Dan Morgan, who plans to select the next artist to follow him with an autumn themed exhibition.

Many Clevelanders will recall Morgan owned and operated Gallery 0022 for five years above SPACES before moving to New York. There he worked for Sothebys auction house. Morgan’s love for the arts is now being rivaled by his love for, slow, local food. He and his wife Annette now operate a Farm Stay vacation rental property in Ashland County.

Soggiorno in Fattoria, Italian for Farm Stay, is the title of the inaugural exhibition on March 28. The event offers guests the first opportunity at purchasing the limited edition work, printed on canvas gallery wraps with special archival inks.

Kari Moore with Slow Food Northern Ohio will assist as Chef Dante Boccuzzi will offer various appetizers featuring meats and cheeses from area farms, as well as a selection of fine wines.
