Small plates and sips with artist Gregory Kondos

kondos.JPGTwo events are coming up, both involving superstars of different types, and both involving food.

First this: Any event featuring internationally acclaimed Sacramento artist Gregory Kondos will sell out in a heartbeat, especially if it's limited to 60 guests. So...

Now this: "Gregory Kondos: Art & Antipasti in the Garden" will feature the artist in an "informal talk and conversation about his life and art." Enjoy a light buffet meal and sip a glass of wine while a living legend holds forth.

The event will start at 6 p.m. Sept. 8 at the historic Murer House, 1125 Joe Murer Court, Folsom. Tickets are $25 at (916) 985-3250, and

Also: Italian autos, motorcycles and motorbikes will be displayed from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 14 at Murer House. The event is free, but look for on-site sales of wood-fired pizza, gelato, gourmet food items, Italian beer and soda, and crafts. If you own an Italian vehicle, bring it.

Both events are fundraisers for the preservation and operation of the Murer House and Learning Center, built in 1925 by Giuseppe "Joe" Murer.
