(Distillations 1)
Five vineyards along the West Tamar will be hosting eight artists exhibiting their work from the 20 - 29 August. 2010. This is a great way to explore the Vineyards of the region, wine sampling  with a side of Art !

One of the feature artists is Bettina Hockey of Feltwolke who has large basket sculptures. Bettina has used a diverse range of materials from wool fleece, black bamboo, willow and vine cuttings.

As you can see on the left the scale of the work is pretty considerable. Constructed in Deviot, Bettina had to get this massive work through to Rowella where her instalment will be hosted at  the Goaty Hill Vineyard.

Hope you can find some time to enjoy this West Tamar event and enjoy the scenery !

Susie McMahon  will also be contributing her amazing work -  sculptures in mixed media featuring at Holm Oak Vineyard

Other West Tamar vineyards exhibiting are: Velo, Elmslie and Moores Hill.
