Brenton Hawes uses paint and ink to create his art.

Staff Report

Wandering Dog Wine Bar is displaying the work one of the Santa Ynez Valley’s newest sketch artists, Brenton Hawes, through Labor Day. The works being shown are sketches that combine animal images and the world of wine.

Hawes’ style with paint and ink combines fine detail and color to make each work reflect an idea and reality on the same page.

 This is his second local exhibition after moving to Solvang two years ago from Santa Barbara, where he was born and raised. The first showing of his art was held at The Good Life in Solvang in February 2018.  

Wandering Dog Wine Bar is at 1539 Mission Drive in Solvang. For more information, visit
