Arts Council welcomes Oliver Twist Winery and Rod’s Aqua Pools

Two arts-supporting businesses have become new members of the Oliver Community Arts Council: Oliver Twist Estate Winery (Bruce and Denice Hagerman) and Rod’s Aqua Pools, Ltd (Rod and LeeAnn Parrent). They join eight businesses, thirteen arts groups, and 80 individual artists and art supporters  currently members of the arts council.

Oliver Twist Estate Winery has delightful wines and lots of charm. From the moment visitors enter the vineyard from Blacksage Road, where a sign cautions  drivers “Grapes at Play” , you know you’re in for a treat!  

Owners Bruce and Denice Hagerman love to mix entertainment and education in their tasting room. As a good example, check out the tongue-in-cheek video of Bruce demonstrating the art of opening a twist-top wine on their website. Look under “Virtual Tours”  on the home page here:  http://www.olivertwistwinery.com

Locals know the winery for one of its specialties: Kerner, an award-winning off-dry white (and this writer’s fave).   Oliver Twist also produces other prize winning vintages, from Proprietor’s Reserve Merlot  to Viognier. Yummy!

Owner Denice Hagerman has been a great community supporter, and any visitors to the winery will benefit from her knowledge of Oliver’s arts and culture scene, activities, and organizations. What a fountain of Oliver information and enthusiasm!

And speaking of fountains and other water features….

The arts council welcomes Rod’s Aqua Pools Ltd as a new business member. Pool installation, maintenance and repair is Rod’s specialty.  In the hot and dry South the Okanagan, you better believe that pools are their very own “art form”, and living by your own backyard pool and hottub is its own summer-long “arts and culture” event!  Rod and LeeAnn are active Oliverites, with LeeAnn standing for a director nomination to the arts council Board at the upcoming AGM.

Oliver Sagebrushers Set to “Paint the Town”

Arts council member group, the Oliver Sagebrushers, is working with Town contractor Laurena Weninger to help spruce up Oliver’s downtown. Weninger was hired by the Town of Oliver to help businesses improve their appearance and marketing strategies.  One of her objectives is to help businesses make use of  $50,000 remaining in  “Paint the Town” grant money.

The Oliver Sagebrushers have been brought on board to paint a series of moveable art panels which can be hung in any vacant store windows along Main Street. This will ease the transition when storefronts are temporarily closed, and help those store windows gain sidewalk appeal. The fine art group hopes this will also increase morale of neighbouring businesses who may fear loss of customer traffic when other businesses close.  By beautifying the window space,  Main Street will retain curbside appeal year round.

The advantage of the project is the decorative art panels can be “recycled” as businesses open and close.  As new temporary window dressing is needed, panels can be moved and rehung.
