Spatlese is the German word for Late Harvest. The Vintner waits to pick the grapes so that the brix (sugar content) level rises as the grapes lose moisture. The resulting juice that's extracted is sweet. Join us during this autumn evening to celebrate the late harvest. Artists known to portray this season in their work will be in attendance, demonstrating and talking about their practice.

The event is titled Full Bodied speaking to the texture in both art and wine. “Body” describes the texture or weight of a wine in the mouth; full bodied wines have a rich, complex, well-rounded flavor that will linger on the palate. As for the “body” of art our featured artists each employe texture in their pieces to add complexity that will linger in the mind. Some paintings use a thick application of paint known as “impasto” while others use fine, thin layers to achieve their desired effect. Texture becomes tactile in sculpture whether the work is crafted from smooth marble or hand thrown pottery. Two of our featured artists incorporate the literal human figure in their in their pieces brought to life with their exquisite use of texture. Join us for a truly full bodied experience.
