A grand combination of wine, music, art and food drew hundreds to the 12th annual art fair at the Forestedge Winery near Laporte last weekend. Wine tasters lined up to sample the various, award-winning wines. The 35 featured artists dazzled in a a variety of mediums, including Bridget Donahue’s whimsical creatures, above.
