Continuing this year!
Chateau Chantal is proud to announce that Lisa Flahive has been selected as the Artist in Residence for their 21st anniversary season. Lisa has a B.F.A in Studio Art from Michigan State University. She is most widely known for her expressive drawings and watercolor paintings of jazz musicians, captured during their performances.

Flahive said she doesn’t sit in the studio painting from photographs that have no life. Instead, she creates the work live in order to capture the energy and emotion that exists on the bandstand. “These paintings have an intensity that I could never achieve in the studio,” said Flahive.

You can watch Flahive create this impressive artwork live every Thursday evening this summer at Chateau Chantal during Jazz at Sunset with the Jeff Haas Trio. Flahive's artwork can be purchased at the winery. Proceeds benefit Building Bridges with Music.

Bring the family and friends and enjoy the best in live jazz, taste select Chateau Chantal wines and lemonade for the kids (yes, this is a very family-friendly environment), and feast your eyes on spectacular panoramic views of West and East Grand Traverse Bays. And there is no admission charge. It all happens at Chateau Chantal on Old Mission Peninsula, 1.7 miles north of the village of Mapleton on Center Road. For more information, call (231) 223-4110 or email: wine@chateauchantal.com.
