Wine, Food and Art pairing (South Florida)

Just read the latest Schnebly Winery newsletter and they’ve included an article on the annual “Dinners in Paradise” at Gabrielle Marewski’s Paradise Farms. This is a lovely, local, organic farm that’s renowned among top Miami chefs for providing the best in microgreens, heirloom tomatoes, herbs, edible flowers and more.

This season Paradise Farms is donating 16 Ready to Grow garden beds to 16 public schools through The Education Fund for their Plant a Thousand Gardens Collaborative Nutrition Initiative.

Schnebly Winery provided the dry Avocado Wine and their signature Category 3 Hurricane Vino for the Common Roots art exhibition that I co-curated with Arts At St Johns and I’m a definite fan of the Avocado Wine… surprisingly similar to a delicate chablis!

Paradise Farms is normally a private space, but during the “Dinners In Paradise”, you have the opportunity to come in, take a tour, enjoy a delicious meal and help a charity all at the same time!

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ART?

It all relates. My art and custom designs are all about sharing the magic of nature’s energy. We are what we eat, drink and believe. There’s magic, memories, and balance in growing a garden, harvesting your very own vegetables and fruits and then preparing them and ideally, sharing a meal with friends and family. Bonus: here’s my Zingy Mango Salsa recipe!

‘Healing Fuschia Reflections’ channels healing energies

Healing Fuschia Reflections – a Nature’s Energy photopainting by Debra Cortese ©2008 

A 15″ x 12.25″ signed, fine art print of Healing Fuschia Reflections is now available for $60. (shipping included in USA) on my Etsy site.

This image was consciously created with the intent to share the healing energies of the fuschia flower and plant devas. An adapted version of this art will be available on a limited edition of handbags designed specifically to benefit the American Cancer Society’s ‘Making Strides’ program. The strong graphics and bold contrasts of color and design of the fuschia carry the dynamic and positive energies of health and healing.

Healing Fuschia Reflections will also be available as a fine art print on paper or canvas.

Sign up for my monthly newsletter and special announcements (when Healing Fuschia Reflections art and handbags will be available) and be eligible to win members-only giveaways of art and handbags.
