We Feel It, Too

We feel it too…the hint of fall in the air. Tomorrow night kicks off high school football season. Almost every store has their Halloween displays up, and certainly the school supply displays are dwindling now that school is in session.

Who doesn’t love the cooler weather? I can’t wait to dig out those sweatshirts and sweaters. Okay–so maybe we are jumping a little early, BUT– it’s NOT too early to think about painting up a door hanger for fall. You pick the shape; you pick the design. We provide the shape, paints, brushes, instruction, ribbon and even a complimentary drink–all for only $45!

Supporting our Community

The 2015 numbers are tallied, and we are proud to announce that last year, we donated $9,829 in cash and in-kind contributions (gift certificates/paintings, etc.) to local nonprofit and service organizations. We believe that it is our duty as a business to support and give back where we can. Sure, we would love to do more, but as a small organization–nearly $10,000 IS significant.

In addition to these direct contributions, we provide special nonprofit staff pricing, free meeting space for up to 3 hours, and host fundraisers every month for nonprofit organizations. We don’t just talk about it; we demonstrate our values every day!

New in 2016, our charitable contributions program is now going exclusively through Together A Greater Good (TAGG). TAGG allows guests to support the organization of their choice with the click of a button. Allowing our guests to designate a contribution on their behalf is empowering, and we hope our guests and nonprofit organizations will embrace this opportunity. Be sure to TAGG your purchase in our gallery!

 

Omaha Table Talk

For the second year in a row, we are hosting an Omaha Table Talk event on Tues., Feb 9th. The Omaha Table Talk is a program of Inclusive Communities, which ensures everyone has a seat at the table. Their mission is to create space in which people from all communities take part in an open and honest dialogue about diversity & inclusion.

It’s vital for our community to have the opportunity to come together, share a meal (thanks to Dudley’s Pizza for sponsoring the meal at Canvas and Cabernet!), and talk openly and honestly about important issues. We are pleased and proud to be involved!

Top 5 Reasons to Paint and Drink With Us

You can paint and drink at several businesses/locations in and around the Omaha area. Here are the 5 TOP reasons to come to Village Canvas and Cabernet for your art as entertainment outing:

1.  Location, location, location.  Located in Aksarben Village–the heart of Omaha, there’s always something going on. There are great bars and restaurants right down the block, Stinson Park events and concerts, Omaha Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings, and a great vibe. And our parking is available and free–all the time.

2.  Our artists are the best! Jacqueline, Gabi, Amanda, Stacia, Kaitlyn, CaSandra, Kalle…all talented artists. Several are educators; all are creative, fun, and know how to teach. Sessions are fun and lively, AND your paintings turn out awesome.

3.  Our inspiring gallery. You won’t find a dropped ceiling, dark paint, and walls filled with clutter; we are proud of our clean, light, and airy gallery feel. Not only can you paint and sip–you can shop, and who doesn’t like to shop??? Jewelry, frames, paintings, cards, ceramics, wood, glass….at all price points. We are open from 3 to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday for greater convenience.

5. Quality team building events. Sure, you can come with a team to paint and have a great, fun social outing. However, if you want a paint and sip event with a customized painting activity related to a learning objective–Village Canvas and Cabernet is the place! We’ve got experience with groups of all sizes, and can tailor an event to meet your goal(s) and objectives.

Our corporate values are: Community, Creativity, Originality and Quality. You see it the minute you check our website, or walk into the door of our gallery. THAT sets us apart!
