Candyland brings home the impact of contemporary art
Don’t miss the Red Carpet After Party

Enjoy live music and delectable bites from the tasting menu with wine pairings, craft beer and sumptuous desserts. Take home a gift bag with a complimentary bottle of Tranquil Heart wine. Tickets include complimentary shuttle between the Tavern Bay parking area and Candyland.
Jeff Marinelli, owner/ publisher of Art+LivingTM media, has always believed in the importance of supporting artists. So for the 45th Annual Lake Arrowhead Home Tour, he and wife Candace Crawford transformed their Tavern Bay home—whimsically dubbed Candyland—into a full-on art gallery featuring nine acclaimed SoCal artists. That meant clearing the way a new collection of paintings, photographs and sculptures as well as specialized furnishings and decor.
All exhibited artworks are for sale, with all proceeds going to the artists. Furnishings are for sale by Timberline in the Glen.
“Art in your home sets a tone for the kind of life you want to live,” says Marinelli. “We staged Candyland . Gallery to show visitors that great contemporary art looks just as at home at the lake as anywhere else.” Marinelli is sometimes asked how to select art for a home. ”Buy something you love, or have a piece commissioned to fit a special space or celebrate an important occasion. Art should make home feel more personal—more memorable.”
Marinelli collaborated with local designers, landscapers and artisans to stage this first-ever Gallery experience. Marinelli said, “Candace and I couldn’t be more proud to showcase these extraordinary artists in such a special landscape. They help us to see the world with new eyes.“
