I went to a lunch yesterday and took a 2006 L.J. I just wanted you to know it was one of the best wines I have ever tasted! Unfortunately I had to share it with others.
At Jones Winery and Vineyard we have more than just wine...
Our gallery and cellar door area includes exhibitions of work by local artists. Attractions include Helen Hay's garden art, sculptures made from recycled farm implements, Joan Mullarvey’s prints emphasising the local indigenous cultures and Onerva Utriainen’s selection of photographs from her 2009 "My New Horizons" exhibition at Anita Traverso Gallery. Our gallery is open during cellar door opening hours.
Helen comes from Chiltern, 17km south east of Rutherglen. It is there that she puts together her amazing pieces of garden art made from discarded bits of metal. Helen uses parts of old farm machinery and horse drawn vehicles, some of which will never be seen again. Each piece is lovingly cleaned then in combination with others is transformed into a unique work of art. You will find her work in the gallery, cellar door area and scattered through the garden.
For more information on Garden Art by Helen Hay go to her Facebook page (Garden Art by Helen Hay) or tel +61 3 5726 1899.
From Yarrawonga, Joan has been exhibiting her paintings and prints at many local galleries and has won many prizes for her works. Her work is influenced by her passion for travel, history and her local environment. The works express in a symbolic way, overlapping beliefs and ideas of many cultures. Her current body of work is called 'Rhythm and Spirit' it celebrates the tribal rhythm and dance and how that beat has influenced most areas of modern music.
From Helsinki, Finland Onerva has exhibited her works in galleries in Finland, Italy and now in Australia. Onerva took these photographs over a two year period. The works, done as C-Prints, represent her exploration of her horizon and what lies beyond it, both from a physical phenomenon point of view and in her imagination.
