The art of Campbell River artist Sonia Hauser will be on display at a Courtenay winery in September.

Wine paired with local artist’s talents

As fall embraces the Natural World during the month of September, the Blue Moon Winery in Courtenay will be pairing its palate pleasers with Campbell River’s visual artist, Sonia Hauser.

This is a beautiful time of year to sample marvellous wines and ciders amid paintings that glory in nature. The winery uses only organic fruits which are cultivated on Vancouver Island.

Wine and cider making on the farm is a process which includes ecology, chemistry, old world wisdom, and adventurous experimentation.

Hauser’s art is displayed in a cozy and alluring setting amid stools arranged around old fashioned kegs. She has lived on the Island for almost forty years and considers herself a West Coast woman.

She teaches music professionally, and her art work encompasses the same elements of colour, texture and movement that define her professional day. Most of the works are oil and play between the realms of realism and abstract art.

On Sunday, Oct. 9 (not Oct. 2 as was incorrectly reported last week) between the hours of 1 to 4 p.m., a reception will be hosted at the winery with the Artist in attendance. You are cordially invited to spend a lovely, cozy fall afternoon in this very intimate setting tasting a selection of their wines and ciders and nibbling on some yummy treats.

The winery is open Saturdays and Sundays in October from 12 to 5 p.m., and can be found at 4905 Darcy Rd., Courtenay.
