Only a limited number of tickets are available. Prices start at $20 for Contemporaries members, $35 for non-members, and include complimentary wine, palate cleansers, live music, the opportunity to purchase artwork and wine, and a raffle drawing that includes an art and wine pairing. Private tables are available for groups starting at $150 for two.
Aquavina Restaurant will supply all the wine for Palate to Palette. Carocon is the artist sponsor.
