Blue Moon Estate Winery has invited Comox Valley artist Lisa Kirk to show in their gallery for December.

The opening reception with Lisa is this Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. for what promises to be a lovely afternoon of a perfect pairing —art and wine!

Lisa is an intuitive mixed media artist who loves to experiment and play with whatever she is working with. This show will be an eclectic selection of her work with small to medium-sized collages and paintings as well as a few larger sized pieces.

This show will feature Lisa’s new Red Dress piece, Releasing the Hold of the Old, which feels perfect for the end of the season and heralding in a new year.

Lisa has received an Award of Excellence for drawing and an Honourable Mention for painting through the Comox Valley Community Arts Council. In 2006, Lisa was nominated Mentor of the Year for the Arts and Culture Awards in the Comox Valley.

Lisa was invited to participate in the 2011 Florence Biennale, in Italy. In April 2013, Lisa was awarded the Nakeestla Award-Coming Together to Make Things Right for her artwork in the Juried Members Show at Comox Valley Art Gallery. This award was presented in partnership with the Comox Valley Justice Centre.

This past July Lisa was selected to show her work in the 27th annual Sooke Fine Art Show. For many years, Lisa has been teaching creative process in her Pure Process Art classes for adults and children, both in her home studio and for the Comox Valley School District.

Lisa may be contacted through her website at www.LisaKirk.ca or by calling 250-334-2567.

Blue Moon Estate Winery has a delicious repertoire of award-winning fruit wines and the opening will coincide with the release of their first apple brandy cider-Harvest Moon.

There will be lots to choose — from bottles of Blue Moon wine to fine art for every budget and taste. Blue Moon Estate Winery is five minutes from downtown Courtenay at Nature’s Way Farm at 4905 Darcy Road.

If you are unable to make it to the opening, the winery will be open Friday to Mondays from 1 to 5 p.m. through Dec. 23 and open Dec. 24 from 1 to 3. Or by appointment: call 250-338-9765.
