County and Country Wine Art Exhibition
Tina Monod, Ontario, April 1, 2019 – This spring I am honoured to be exhibiting my art at the Hubbs Creek Vineyard and Winery in Hillier, Ontario. Fresh from the vines, this new collection “Vintages of the County,” is inspired by the wines of Hubbs Creek!
Pinot Gris, Gamay Rose, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the emotion on my brush. There are 3 paintings for each of these vintages. This series as a whole illustrates a vibrant landscape of viticulture. There is a visual connection here of the seasons and the senses.
Wine growing, cultivating and harvesting grapes are the themes in these miniature acrylic paintings. Great imagination and attention to detail can be found in these collectible 10×10 and 12×12 inch pieces. When combined as 3 images hung vertically, they really tell a story. All are designed to add warmth and joy to wall spaces and home decor individually and collectively. The possibilities are many for mixing and matching.
Just 12 gallery canvases are available at the winery for purchase. Sales from the artwork will include donations to Villa Charities. I am looking forward to donating 10 percent of my artist’s profits to support the celebration of Italian Heritage, culture and the arts. Villa provides culturally conscious long-term care to the elderly of the Italian-Canadian community. They are one of the most versatile, holistic, and inclusive charities in Canada. Come taste the wines and see the art!
Special thank you to the Calvieri family for inviting me to show my work at their winery. I am grateful for this opportunity and happy to be sharing my art with the people of Prince Edward County.
