The perfect idea to combine wine and art from time to time visits individual bright heads. Besides mine. Moreover, some are able to turn this idea into a productive business. It’s about some English gentlemen who keep a unique art gallery / wine boutique in Warwick, a small town in the heart of United Kingdome, on the way from London to Birmingham.
Under the name “Art & Wine” in the historic center of the city is a modest establishment. On the one hand, it’s like an art gallery, but – with a wine cellar / boutique. And on the other hand, the institution conducts corporate parties and tastings, but at the same time – most of its squares are occupied by expositions of painting and sculpture. Just a mechanical connection of two dissimilar functions? By no means! As his hosts write on the home page of his website , when two passions are arguing in the heart – to wine and art – this combination is the only and happy way out.
They and something else came up. In addition to the wine cellar of the 17th century with the best collection wines of the Old World and the picture gallery of famous artists of the past and the
present, they have an orgy room in the style of a Mediterranean courtyard, equipped with a wine bar, where parties and tastings are organized:
Perhaps this experience can not be repeated close to the original – not every city has a wine cellar with a 350-year history, and a decent collection of paintings is not so easy to assemble. But here, for example, the exhibition of modern art photography in a wine boutique to place – there is simply nothing to do.
In general, this idea stirs the minds. The wine party in the picture gallery is a permanent motif of the painting of our recent acquaintance, American artist Madison Moore , whom we recently wrote about. Below is one of a series of her works. Another bright head, which does not give rest to the idea of a union of wine and art. It would be necessary to reduce it to these Englishmen, let them replenish their art collection with her paintings. Related souls tend to merge. And related businesses – too.
