March 28 1pm-4pm - Meet the artist Matt Lively -

Regular tasting fee applies.

Matt Lively has made his mark on the Richmond Art scene ever since the early 90's. From that day to this he has become one of the most beloved artists of Virginia by way of his paintings and murals. Spring is the perfect time to show Matt's work as his "Lively" creations always fill the heart with joy! Expect many of his favorite images, The Beecycles, Treehouses, Floating Sheep and of course one of Jacque's favorites, "Doug the Dog." Rumor has it that Matt's portrait of "Doug" was actually inspiration for the Doug the dog in Disney's ,"UP."

One of the reason why Cooper Vineyards loves Matt and his work so much is all the amazing Pet Portraits Matt creates and as many of you know Jacque is a huge supporter/rescuer of our little furry friends. Matt is proudly represented by the glave kocen gallery whose 1st solo exhibit in November of 2014 called, "Playfield" was a huge success.
