Visual arts experts revive teamwork from the ’70s

Art and wine — both are subjective, evoke emotion and tend to be very personal.

Art and wine — both are subjective, evoke emotion and tend to be very personal.

Local artist Neil Haver’s work will be paired with a complimentary tasting of Blue Moon Estate Winery’s award-winning wines, a recipe for a pleasant Sunday afternoon outing.

Blue Moon Winery is pleased to feature the recent silk-screened original prints by local graphic artist Neil Havers. The prints will hang for the month of September at the Winery.

Havers is best known for the graphic design and marketing services

he has provided here in the Comox Valley for the past 30 years.

What people don’t know is that he has always had a passion for the silk screen printing process, particularly when it comes to art prints. He met and worked in the medium with local master screen printer Andy MacDougall back in the 1970s in Edmonton.

Throughout the years they have produced many works of art together. Recently they’ve been working on a raven series, which will be the featured works at Blue Moon Winery.

A new print called Raven Glacier will be unveiled on Sunday.

To meet the artist and printer and see the unveiling of Raven Glacier, you are invited to Blue Moon Estate Winery (at Natures Way Farm) this Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Blue Moon Estate Winery is located at 4905 Darcy Rd. just north of Courtenay.

— Neil Havers
