Charity event of wine and art
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.
