A delectable exhibition of new work inspired by fine wine by Lucy Carolan, Richard Glynn and Louise Taylor.
Since Roman times, it's been considered that wine reliably reveals a person's character. For experimental natural wine producer François Blanchard, in vino veritas means remaining true to the character of the grape, respecting the integrity of this very complex fruit and skilfully drawing out its subtle aromas.
Each year the grapes are picked and pressed by hand and foot. The harvest is labour intensive, but also a festive event, with families, friends, musicians and artists from all around France and beyond coming together to make and celebrate wine.
Wideyed photographers Lucy Carolan, Richard Glynn and Louise Taylor took part in the 2010 and 2011 harvests as artists-in-residence at the Blanchard domaine of Chà ¢teau du Perron in the Touraine region of France. Their responses to the wine and way of life they experienced there have matured into In Vino Veritas, their first collective show in the UK.
On 27th April, join Wideyed and François Blanchard at the exhibition preview for a tasting of nouveaux works and vibrant wines.
