Wine & Canvas to move to Lake Lorraine area

Sept. 26, 2018

Wine & Canvas is moving to the west side of Sioux Falls.

The final studio class will be Saturday evening in Wine & Canvas’ home for almost five years in the Village on Louise retail center at 57th Street and Louise Avenue. The move will start on Monday, and the first class in the new home at Westside Plaza at 26th Street and Marion Road will be Friday night.

“We like the idea of being near Lake Lorraine,” said Sarah Callahan, who brought the franchise to Sioux Falls with her husband, Jesse, in February 2013. At Wine & Canvas, an instructor guides each class through the creation of a painting while the participants enjoy a glass of wine or beer — or cookies for the younger artists.

Wine & Canvas will be in a former bakery spot that has been vacant for a year. The new space will hold almost 50 painters, about 20 fewer than the current location. The studio typically gets used seven times a week, and other classes are held in the community.

“We will continue our travel classes,” Callahan said. Wine & Canvas holds painting parties in restaurants,  bars and other locations. That’s how the business started, and it expanded to the studio in February 2014.

During the first two weeks in the west-side location, the Callahans are having an open house.

“During classes, you can come in and check out the new space and have a glass of wine,” she said.

Wine & Canvas also serves as an art gallery with original works and extra paintings that have been created during classes for sale. Those demonstration pieces typically sell for $10 a canvas. Callahan said she has several pieces she’d be happy to sell before the move.
