A Wine Tasting Event To Benefit AZI

A Benefit for Amorgos

Italy cultivates roughly 2,000 native grape varieties. Award-winning wine journalist Lisa Denning and Italian wine specialist Marco Salerno will introduce the concept of native grapes and highlight varieties that are under the radar for the general public but are being talked about excitedly within insider Italian wine communities.

Featured wines will include native grape varieties from Northern, Central, and Southern Italy. The wine presentation will explore the grapes' connection with the history and culture of the respective regions.

Join us to support the mission of AZI, a unique animal care center on the island of Amorgos. Our efforts include vaccinating and managing the cat population on the island, caring for many injured and sick animals, rescuing abused equines, and school visits on the island.

Fig Leaves to Photoshop, and a lot in between: Willful Alterations of Art across the Ages

The Visual Artists Rights Act protects artist’s works from “distortion, mutilation, or modification that would prejudice the author's honor or reputation.”  But what happens when the artist is no longer around to notice or object to such changes?  This talk will examine the long history of alterations to works of art done in the name of prudery, religiosity, changing taste, personal animosity, politics, and commercial gain. A review of paintings and sculpture from antiquity through the Renaissance, and into the twentieth century, that have been willfully distorted and perverted will provide a sobering and occasionally  humorous cautionary tale on the permanence of the artist's vision.
