Featured Artist

MBTB Tasting Room is home to a long-term gallery exhibit by Michigan artist Stephanie Schlatter. Stephanie, who hails from the Grand Rapids area, describes herself as “a painter of color, with a passion for expressing those things which inspire me.” One of those things is Michigan wine country, which served as the catalyst for Stephanie’s series, “On the Michigan Wine Trail.” The OTMWT works are her vivid depictions of the state’s sweeping vineyard vistas, but Stephanie says it’s more than just an attempt to re-create beautiful scenery.

“It explores the essence of the region’s many seasonal faces,” she explained. “It reveals the hearts of the people who live there, and what happens to them as they inhabit and grow attached to this enchanting place. It captures the magic that I personally found there, that has in turn captured me. My series, like their wine, tells of the people – their journeys, their art, and the relationships they’ve built with the land. The stories are all there on the canvas, like a bottle of wine, waiting for us to uncork it.”

You can see portions of Stephanie’s OTMWT series in person at MBTB Tasting Room, and also purchase originals and/or prints of various sizes on site.
