Summer 2015 Art And Winemaker's Dinner

Welcome to our 6th annual Summer Art and Winemaker’s Dinner Exhibition.

We are pleased to round out our year with you in the company of our featured artists Carrie Graber, Aldo Luongo, Mark Gaskin and Amy Nelder, and accompanied by winemakers PJ & Robert Rex, their fabulous Deerfield Ranch Wines, and another feast from Chef Pelle Nilsson.

With this showing we bring you world-class figurative and still-life painting highly influenced by the culture of each artist. Feel the colors and heat of the California desert in Carrie Graber’s paintings; the soulful and passionate Argentinian romanticism of Aldo Luongo; the expressive nature of the bucolic paintings, reminiscent of Renaissance frescoes, of Mark Gaskin; or the vibration of urban chic acrylics drawn with the expertise of an Old Master from Amy Nelder.

We present you with four very important North American artists whose artwork graces the walls of museum, corporate and private collections world-wide. Embrace and enjoy this evening’s exquisite pairing of a few delicious bites, world-class wines and these significant contemporary expressions.

 

Kindest regards,

 

 

 

Greg Lejnieks, President/Founder
