Char­ity event of wine and art

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS - By CHE BAKER

Wine and art will be brought to­gether next week as the Up­per Clutha Chil­dren’s Med­i­cal Trust hosts a fundraiser amongst the vines of Wanaka. The Art and Wine in the Vines char­ity event will be held at a pri­vate home and vine­yard at Mt Barker. Event con­veyor Lau­rel Gilks said an ex­ten­sive ar­ray of art would be on dis­play, in­clud­ing works be­long­ing to Fiona Camp­bell and the Real Art Road­show, and other works would be auc­tioned off. ‘‘There will be all sorts of fab­u­lous wine to be drunk also,’’ Mrs Gilks said. The char­ity had been set up about five years ago to as­sist fam­i­lies strug­gling with med­i­cal bills. ‘‘We have a steady sup­ply of re­quests [for help].’’ Dunedin-based gallery own­ers and art dealer Mar­shall Seif­fert will be a guest speaker at the event and will give an in­sight­ful into buy­ing art and keep­ing it for the fu­ture.
