Kim Roberts of Westport Winery Named Artist Trust Ambassador


Date: 06/15/12

Kim Roberts has been appointed as an ambassador to Washington State’s Artist Trust Fund. Roberts is co-owner of Westport Winery—named Washington Winery to Watch by Wine Press Northwest—where she and her husband, Blain, have created an outdoor sculpture garden in collaboration with local artists to commemorate each of their 33 award-winning wines. A 1982 graduate of Washington State University’s School of Architecture with a minor in Fine Arts, Roberts is the former owner of Oceanic Art Gallery in Westport. Currently, Roberts serves on the Washington State Wine Commission and the Greater Grays Harbor Board of Directors.

Artist Trust is a not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to support and encourage individual artists working in all disciplines in order to enrich community life throughout Washington State. Artist Trust Ambassadors help to ensure that artists of all disciplines across Washington State get the resources they need to thrive. Roberts will help Washington’s coastal arts community by being a bridge to Artist Trust’s programs and services and by providing feedback to Artist Trust on how best to serve those artists.

Westport Winery and Vineyards By-the-Sea with its unique outdoor sculptures, display gardens, and grape maze is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Aberdeen and the Westport ‘Y’. The winery is open for tasting daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The winery’s restaurant is open for lunch during the summer daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner is served on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information contact Kim Roberts via email at Ki@WestportWines.com.
