Originally founded as the Wichita Art Association in 1920, Mark Arts is the area’s oldest and most comprehensive visual arts organization. Since its inception, Mark Arts has made art and art education available as a privately funded organization. Art instruction for adults, teens and children is available in culinary arts, dance, digital arts, drawing, enameling, jewlery, metalsmithing, painting, photography, printmaking, pottery and sculpture.

 This architectural drawing doesn’t do the new building justice!  It truly is a work of ART and the interior is too, modern – high tech – spacious – and dramatic…

Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2007 Bodegas LAN Gran Reserva, Rioja Spain
90% Tempranillo from a selection of the best grapes coming from 30 year-old, low yielding bush vines in the Rioja Alta and 10% Mazuelo from our Viña Lanciano vineyard.  Destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30º C. The wine was then macerated for 3 weeks, over-pumping the must daily to favor higher extraction of color and aromas.  Aged 24 months in American and French oak barrels, followed by a minimum of 36 months in the bottle.  Garnet with ruby hues. Aromas of ripe red fruits combined with spicy notes from the aging in oak (Vanilla, cinnamon, fennel, licorice root) and tertiary aromas (Leather, cigar box…) from its prolonged bottle ageing. Full bodied and round, its mouthfeel is elegant and very well balanced.  Pair with roasted meats, lamb, hearty stews and cured cheeses.  Learn more here!  Follow on FaceBook & Twitter
