Ever since The Vendue re-opened in May 2014
, owners Jon and Lisa Weitz have emphasized the hotel's presence as a space for art of all kinds. During its several exhibits a year, The Vendue, guided by curators Robert and Megan Lange, displays at least 40 pieces, with artists hailing from all corners of the globe. The theme for November's exhibit (which will be on display until March 2016) is Silver versus Gold. The opening reception
will be held on Nov. 12 from 6-8 p.m. featuring live music, gold and silver themed cocktails, and passed hors d'oeuvres.

All of the displayed works were created specifically for the exhibit, with participating artists submitting work beforehand in order to be considered before being given the theme. “The caliber of artists creating work for this show is top notch and with the reputation of the hotel as an art lover’s dream destination spreading, I’m excited to see how the art experience will continue to grow," says Robert Lange.
Local artists included in the exhibit include Karen Ann Myers, Eva Carter, Mickey Williams, and Nathan Durfee.
If you're interested in a more lavish art affair, The Vendue will hold a premiere dinner on Nov.11 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. with a four-course meal and wine pairings for $85 a guest.
