Art & Wine: A Perfect Pairing
Join Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) Director Tarissa Tiberti and Jason Smith, Director of Wine and Master Sommelier, as he pairs wines from Bellagio's cellar with artworks featured in the current exhibition, "Warhol Out West". The December 11th event is the last Art & Wine event that will feature the Warhol Out West exhibit. We look forward to welcoming Painting Women from the MFA Boston in 2014 and will have a schedule in the next couple of weeks.
"I have spent many years studying wine, and these events are pushing my wine knowledge to a whole new level," Smith states. "Art & Wine: A Perfect Pairing not only allowed me to view the works of art from a different perspective, but it added a visual dimension to the joy of tasting wine."
Tiberti explains, "During this collaborative effort, we explored the many commonalities of art and wine. They are both subjective, evoke emotion and tend to be very personal. I've enjoyed the creative discussions we've had internally and look forward to having them with our guests as well."
This series offers a unique way to experience BGFA's world-class exhibitions again or for the first time. Art & Wine events are held the second Wednesday of every month. Selections vary, but have ranged from champagne, tequila, and even beer, depending on the aesthetic inspiration. The Perfect Pairing series runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., with an interactive wine and art discussion by Jason Smith and Tarissa Tiberti beginning at 6 p.m.
