LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinot's Palette, a national paint and sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, announced today the opening of its newest studio in Louisville, Ky. located at 291 N. Hubbards Lane. Louisville residents will now have a place to channel their inner Picasso while having a great time with family and friends. A grand opening weekend celebration will begin Nov.15 with a special ribbon cutting from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with Greater Louisville, Inc. The community is also invited to attend a class and enjoy half price wine and beer by the glass.
"I'm thrilled to be opening a Pinot's Palette and can't wait for Louisvillians to enjoy this unique concept," said Pinot's Palette franchisee Mollie Noe. "Even if you have never picked up a paint brush, Pinot's Palette offers the perfect place for an evening of fun, friends, family and art."
Mollie first learned about Pinot's Palette while celebrating her mother's 60th birthday at a paint and sip studio. Looking to further her entrepreneurial spirit, she immediately knew she wanted to bring this concept to the residents of Louisville. After researching several concepts along with her husband, Anthony Noe, they decided Pinot's Palette was the perfect fit. Prior to Pinot's Palette, Mollie worked in the real estate industry and in 2010 was recognized nationally as a Top 50 finalist for Top 30 Under 30 Realtor in the United States.
At Pinot's Palette, guests sign up online to attend a two- or three-hour painting class where they receive simple, step-by-step instructions by a local, trained artist how to recreate the featured painting of the night. They depart at the end of the evening with their own 16-inch by 20-inch acrylic painting on a stretched canvas, having laughed and sipped their way through a real, live (and very fun) art class. Guests can also purchase a Pinot's Palette signature wine glass to remind them of their special night.
Pinot's Palette is staffed by local artists who teach the lively painting classes, which typically attract "Girls' Night Out" groups, "Date Night" couples, anniversaries, bachelorette parties, families and anyone looking for a fun-filled evening out. The classes also cater to painters of all levels ranging from beginners to the more experienced.
"We are very excited to be expanding our footprint and introducing this unique concept to Louisville," said Craig Ceccanti, chief executive officer, Pinot's Palette. "Mollie and Anthony's enthusiasm and passion coupled with their ability to provide leadership and generate goodwill in the community is exactly what we look for in prospective franchisees."
The new location is open Monday – Friday 10AM-4PM and during regularly scheduled classes. For more information on the new Louisville Pinot's Palette, call 502.409.4572 or visit www.PinotsPalette.com/Louisville to book a class or private party online.
