After enjoying a Summer-full of visitors flocking to enjoy the Kerri Greens sunshine, for the first time ever, their intimate cellar door is staying open over Autumn and Winter, with converted barrel room gallery showcasing local emerging artists.
The first artist to exhibit is Joshua Searle; his work is 'bold, captivating and edgy' with an affinity for large scale mixed medium paintings.
“We’re thrilled to have Josh in the space this Autumn. His art, created amidst his indigenous garden, is made sustainably and consciously, fitting very much with our ethos here at Kerri Greens. There won’t be a better place to be, than in the cozy barrel room, with a glass of wine in hand, and these bold local works adorning the walls." Says Sarah Saxton, co-owner of Kerri Greens.
Vibrant colours and textural tones dominate Joshua Searle’s artworks, created in the coastal environment of his studio in Rye.
“I draw on my own experiences and feelings to derive imagery full of colour and emotions. I am examining what it is to be someone in this modern world and what it is to see more than just what is. People passionate about the arts, either under the liquid form in the glass or animated on walls, this exhibition is for you.” Adds Searle.
Exploring themes such as self and society, the artist is teaming up with the wine makers from April 23 to June 14 2021 - Friday through to Sunday.
Opening night drinks on April 23rd are hosted by Joshua Searle himself from 3pm to 5pm, and again Saturday April 24th from 2pm to 5pm.
The exhibit is free to enter, with bookings recommended for tastings and BYO picnics.
