Getting High on the Granite Belt

We promise an elevated experience in the Granite Belt. Our artists and winemakers are certainly experiencing it at Art on Amiens, part of the Granite Belt Primavera Festival 2011.

Art on Amiens is an art trail showcasing some of the finest contemporary art the Granite Belt has to offer on show at galleries, wineries and food artisans throughout Amiens. Participating artists include Laurie Astill, Pat and Tom Benkendorff, Maggie Brockie, Keith Cameron, Linda Clutterbuck, Margaret Dowe, Chris Fletcher, Sue Jurd, Sandra McEwan, Maryke Miller, Bent and Eva Rasmussen, Michael Pieper, and Fay Roselt.

The above picture is Mark from Ravenscroft Wines, getting extremely comfortable in the latest addition to his winery - a massive wrought iron chair by artist Keith Cameron - with a glass of his favourite red wine in hand.

We are also loving Keith's artistic work on display at Castle Glen (left) - it's a rather regal affair!

Join us at the opening of Art on Amiens tomorrow at Nest Gallery. To go on this artistic journey simply download the trail brochure or pick up a copy from the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre,  and follow the red banners along Amiens Road and adjoining roads.
