A very special experience awaits you Saturday March 5 at Gibson Fine Art.
From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., artist-and-sommelier Jessym Box will lead us on a unique and curated adventure: pairing fine wines with fine art!
Jessamyn, who is both a Level 4 Sommelier and an accomplished painter, has selected five vintages to be paired with five of her newest artworks, as part of her latest exhibition at GFA.
At the event, Jessaym will walk us through five stations where she will spend time discussing each wine selection and her reasoning for pairing it with her chosen artwork. Guests will be invited to taste and to learn about the five different wines, as well as the corresponding paintings.
Tickets are $10; light accouterments will be served to complement the tasting.
Jessamyn completed the prestigious Wine Spirit Education Trust (W.S.E.T.), Level 4 Diploma in 2016, and then performed sommelier duties in a succession of top Vancouver restaurants, all the while advancing her dynamic and lively canvases. We are thrilled to have her back in Calgary, where she is now part of the fabulous team at J Webb, conducting tastings and sharing wine wisdom!
The exhibition runs Mar. 5 through Mar 23 at GFA -- be sure to catch it.
