Palate to Palette: The Imagery Collection at SSU

July 14, 2016 - July 31, 2016

I know this is short notice, but on view now is the first label image I created for Imagery Estate Winery in 2011 - titled three sheets - in the exhibition Palate to Palette: The Imagery Collection at SSU. I had the pleasure of attending a special reception last week that celebrated SSU's acquisition of the premiere collection of unique works from Imagery Estate Winery that was generously donated this past December. The works on display are pulled from an incredible collection of artworks originally commissioned as wine labels.

Stay tuned for my second label, which I am currently working on and should be complete late summer.
