An art competition for the Millbrook vineyards and winery opens

The official start of summer is ahead of us. This often means taking a little more time to enjoy the outdoors, travel and explore destinations in our own forest.

Conveniently located in Millbrook, Millbrook Vineyards and Winery has been producing high quality wines from the Hudson Valley for the past 35 years.

The winery recently opened its annual Art in the Loft Wine Label Competition. This juried exhibition is in partnership with Arts Mid-Hudson and adds another beautifully crafted detail to your visit to the winery. The seasonal art exhibition enlivens the attic upstairs and creates a unique opportunity to view the works of talented regional artists.

Art in the Loft 2022 is a judged exhibition and sale of fine arts by 14 members of the Arts Mid-Hudson. Each work of art brings a different perspective, theme and environment to the attic, all with the cohesion of a traditional gallery.

James Bennett’s Running Like the Wind is a dreamy depiction of an intertwining ribbon that almost looks like a DNA chain. Bennett states that the painting “represents movement, rhythm and dynamic interaction on only four lines (four major forces of nature, four seasons, four compass points, etc.). The compositions refer to the movement (currents and roads) in nature, music and life in general. ”

Marielena Ferrer’s Black Monarch is a silk monoprint, acrylic on tissue paper. Monarch butterflies “embody the natural freedom of life,” Ferrer said. They “move without restrictions from one country or region and settle in another.”

Vanessa Joy’s “Burst” is an abstract painting measuring 24 by 24 inches, acrylic on canvas, which can transport the viewer through any mood. Starting on the left side of the picture, the shapes and colors are calm and light. When your eye moves to the center of the canvas, something changes. There is an intersection of worlds that lead to the other side of the canvas, full of free-form forms and bold, bright colors.

“Elephant skin” by Mimi Chaika Graminski was created with thread as a material for painting. Intricate stitching and stitching on raw linen can create amazing patterns that can really be appreciated with a closer look. After coming out of the tightly connected seams, the purple and blue-green strands loosen and hang freely, as if loosening your hair. The mixture of these two states, tightly wound and free freedom, is truly inspiring.
