From the 4th of July fireworks to our Mercer Island Summer Celebration, this month's Art & Wine event was especially festive. What a wonderful turn-out, thank you!
Of local artist, Paul Laws' featured work, I'm most intrigued by Wicked Thicket. His paintings are ephemeral, drawing you into its intricate textures. Paul's artwork will be featured at the SZ Gallery until August 3rd.
Of Gitte Peters' beautiful oil paintings, Love of Nature has been my recent obsession. This peaceful oasis has offered me tranquil repose during my busy days. Gitte's considered our European Artist in Residence. We're incredibly lucky to have this Danish-born's stunning work imported all the way from her studio in Monaco.
The Islander treated us to a vast selection of tastings from his Stock Your Wine Cellar Event, offering wines at only 10% above cost. Of the those I tasted, I was most impressed by the Domaine Chandon Etoile Rose. Chef Scott out did himself with an impressive cheese platter, baked brie, an olive tapenade & bruschetta, which made from incredible pairings!
