Add Flavour with Art

Gord Langston
Adding Flavour with Art on the
North Saanich Flavour Trail this weekend
Aug. 24 & 25th  11 to 5 pm

Muse Winery
11195 Chalet Road, North Saanich

The Flavour Trail encompasses the ideal of introducing everyone to the local flavours of the community, with locally grown produce, wine, baking and we think that local art should be a part of the bountiful mix that creates flavour for the home.  We've invited a number of local artists to bring their works of art to Muse for the weekend and you'll find them in the vineyards!

Heather Gunning
 As you wander through the Bacchus, Marechal....also look for the work of Gord Langston and Heather Gunning.  Gord & Heather both have their unique flares of taking that which other might discard and turning metal into beautiful pieces of art for the home, garden and to wear.

Pauline Olesen will be bringing some of her fused glass work and jewelry to the vineyard. If you've been to the winery before, you might have seen some of her work in our Wine & Gift Shop. Here's a video clip from a recent Monday Magazine interview at her Piers Island Studio.

In the Bacchus Room, look for work from the Peninsula Plein Air Painters on exhibition and you'll find a few of those artists in the vineyard...painting...plein air of course!   We welcome works from Keith Levang, Stephanie Quainton Steel- author and artist
John Moloney, Ian & Renate Waterlow and Paul Alex Bennett.

Paul Alex Bennet
 We've shown just a few of the beautiful works by these Plein Air painters.  We hope you can join us to enjoy the marvelous palette of work showing off captured moments and places in our area.

Last, but by no means least...sculptor Paul Harder will be bringing his newest creations to the vineyard.  He mentioned cats and dogs were his newest works, but this photo makes us wonder what kind of cat will be coming to the vineyard!?
