When 13th Street Winery opened the doors to its new retail facility on Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines in the fall of 2009, part of the owner’s vision for the new location was to provide visitors a unique experience that stimulates all the senses, not just taste. With that in mind, renovations of the turn-of-the-century farmhouse included the creation of the spectacular Gallery Room, designed to showcase various art exhibits. With floor to ceiling windows on two sides, the remaining walls are used to display original art exhibitions by some of Canada’s most respected and exciting artists,
The focal point of the Gallery Room is the majestic 18-foot, 1300 lb (half-ton) solid slab hardwood table made from Indonesian hardwood. The wood is a tropical hardwood known as Kayu Meh; Kayu means wood in Indonesia and Meh is the species of tree. It is not cut from the rainforest but rather grows very fast and is found on small farms and in villages much like a Maple tree in Canada. This impressive table seats 20 people comfortably and is ideal for a private dinner or corporate meeting.
The artwork found on the inside 13th Street Winery is rotated throughout the year and features original works by various Canadian artists.
13th Street is proud to have had the opportunity to display works from the following artists: Michael Adamso, Gary Blundell, Ronald Boaks, David Bolduc, Nicole Katsura, Joseph Drapell, William Ronald, Floyd Elzinga, Sarah Phelps, and Dan Solomon. We are also thrilled to have a collection of permanent sculptures on the property by Karoly Veress, Floyd Elzinga, Dan Soloman, and Ilan Averbuch.
